About the Coalition
Health IT Now is a coalition of the nation’s most powerful names in technology and healthcare, working to deploy health information technology to improve quality of care and lower costs.
As the premiere Health IT advocacy organization in Washington, D.C., Health IT Now is on the front lines of the fight to increase access to technology-enabled care, promote interoperability across the healthcare continuum, reduce the federal regulatory burden, and engineer a data-driven response to the opioid crisis.
Our members are patient groups, provider organizations, employers, insurers, and other stakeholders across the intersection of healthcare and technology. We are united in creating a world-class healthcare system that allows for the seamless and secure flow of information to empower patients, improve care delivery and outcomes, lower costs, and speed the development of new cures and treatments.
Health IT Now’s seasoned team of experts engineer solutions-oriented campaigns that include policy development, legislative and regulatory advocacy campaigns, ally and network development and media outreach.
Our track record of success includes the passage of landmark bills like The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015, and the 21stCentury Cures Act. More recently, Health IT Now successfully shepherded House and Senate passage of the VETS Act, which will increase access to telehealth services across state lines for the 20 million men and women who receive care through the Department of Veterans Affairs. And we’re just getting started.
