HHS Issues Request for Information on Effective and Innovative Approaches/Best Practices in Health Care in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
HHS issued a request for information (RFI), to be posted on the Federal Register on November 24, soliciting the input of healthcare systems and clinicians on innovative approaches and best practices in health care in response to the COVID-19 pandemic for both COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 health conditions. HHS further indicated they are interested in approaches that are validated by data confirming efficacy and/or effectiveness with demonstrated improvements in one or more of the following measures: patient outcomes, access to health care, safety, quality, and/or value. HHS plans to use responses to the RFI in order to inform HHS priorities and programs. Responses to the RFI should be submitted via the online RFI portal (see column J) by 11:59pm ET on December 24, 2020.
