The Washington, D.C.-based eHealth Initiative (eHI) has announced the launch of a public-private collaboration that will aim to help guide the transformation of the nation’s healthcare system by 2020.

With the help and support of a wide array of leading healthcare associations, organizations, and federal agencies, the eHealth Initiative 2020 Roadmap will propose key policy recommendations to implement at a federal level and actions for the private sector to help transform healthcare.

 The 2020 Roadmap will be developed over the next six months through a series of surveys, webinars, executive roundtables, and events with key constituencies; the outcome will be a consensus on how to shape the future of the healthcare system.  Individuals are welcome to complete surveys, participate in upcoming events, and provide general feedback, officials say.

The 2020 Roadmap will focus on recommendations that:

  • Identify a sustainable glide path for meaningful use
  • Promote interoperable systems
  • Transform care delivery
  • Balance innovation and privacy

“Health reform calls for transformation to a value-based interoperable system, but there is little direction on how to transition from our current work processes and systems. Clinicians, payers and providers need leadership to help transform delivery systems and control cost,” Jennifer Covich Bordenick, CEO of the eHealth Initiative, said in a statement. “The goal of our new initiative is to craft a multi-stakeholder solution that coordinates the efforts of both the public and private sector so that we can make this transition successfully.”
