The House Energy and Commerce Committee is seeking public comment on a white paper released June 17 regarding potential digital and personalized healthcare technologies intended to enable 21st Century cures.

The aim of the committee is to accelerate the discovery, development, and delivery cycle to get promising new treatments and cures to patients more quickly. “We are committed to making sure our legal and regulatory framework fosters the development of such a digital healthcare ecosystem and allows it to serve as a catalyst for the discovery, development, and delivery of new treatments and cures for patients,” states the white paper. “We are not there yet. The committee seeks guidance about how this vision can become a reality and what role Congress can play in the process.”
