Health Reform Needs Enforceable National Workforce Strategy

AAHC Urges Congress to Ensure Health Workforce Recommendations are Implemented

WASHINGTON, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressional leaders must ensure that health reform includes a health workforce planning body with sufficient authority to ensure implementation of an integrated, coordinated national health workforce policy, according to Dr. Steven A Wartman, president and CEO of the Association of Academic Health Centers (AAHC). "With each step in the legislative process, the Congress has progressed toward a more effective health workforce planning process," Wartman said. "Still missing from both House and Senate bills is a mechanism -- such as national health workforce commission recommendations that automatically go into effect unless overridden by Congress -- to ensure timely implementation of the recommendations," added Wartman, urging Congress to address this concern before finalizing the legislation.

An updated analysis of the current House and Senate bills released today by the AAHC identifies additional strengths and weaknesses in the bills when measured against the AAHC's own health workforce recommendations:

  • The AAHC recommends that development and implementation of an integrated, coordinated, strategic national health workforce policy be the primary objective of any advisory committee or national commission. The House bill contains a clear statement that the purpose of its advisory committee is "to develop and implement an integrated, coordinated, and strategic national health workforce policy reflective of current and evolving health workforce needs," while the Senate bill only lists national health workforce policy as one of several priorities.
  • The AAHC recommends the list of enumerated issues to be addressed by the advisory committee or national commission include the harmonization of conflicting national and state-based regulatory
