Members met with our WV Congressional delegation to discuss three key points:
- Cosponsor H.R. 1155/S. 1361, a bill that would expand access to cardiac rehabilitation by allowing physician assistants, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists to supervise cardiac, intensive cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs.
- Foster innovation and research through increased funding for the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
- Ease administrative burden on clinicians by exercising oversight of QPP implementation, streamlining electronic health record (EHR) requirements, supporting H.R. 3120, a bill that would ease meaningful use requirements, and facilitating smooth transition to new payment models.
