Health Care Innovation

True health care reform should unleash innovation so technology and health-care quality can advance for everyone, especially the least fortunate.

To unleash medical innovation, the health care industry needs to operate more like the Internet economy, where people and companies can innovate and compete to advance quality care and and give patients better options at lower costs.

The possibilities are limitless. Innovative technologies like telemedicine, telemetry, health apps and 3-D printing have the potential to expand and improve health care if states are willing to empower providers to use them.

Telemedicine, for example, can eliminate distance barriers and improve access to medical care for people living in impoverished and rural communities. But according to the American Telemedicine Association, 28 states and Washington, D.C. currently limit how doctors can treat patients via telemedicine, which prevents patients from reaping the full health benefits of this innovative technology.
