Mayo Clinic CEO John Noseworthy, M.D., released the following statement today on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce’s bipartisan “21st Century Cures” discussion draft:
“Mayo Clinic applauds the leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee for releasing this bipartisan legislative language aimed at speeding life-saving medical treatments to patients. The 21st Century Cures discussion draft released today by Chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich., Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., and other committee members includes several critical measures that should advance innovation in health care research, discovery and delivery.
“We are particularly pleased to see the draft’s emphasis on reducing regulatory barriers that unnecessarily slow clinical trials We also are very encouraged by the committee’s efforts to increase funding for the National Institutes of Health, which Mayo Clinic believes is an essential national investment. In addition, we note the telemedicine placeholder, and are hopeful lawmakers will include measures that promote the use of telemedicine—including language to address the issue of medical licensure—in the final legislation.

“While the discussion draft is the result of a diligent effort that took place over the past year to harness the best ideas from a broad range of stakeholders, we know more work lies ahead. Mayo Clinic looks forward to reviewing the details of the 21st Century Cures language and working with policymakers to help pass legislation that will advance health care innovation and benefit millions of patients.”
