AdvaMed Responds to U.S. House of Representatives Health Futures Task Force, Modernization Subcommittee Request for Information on Utilization of Wearable Technologies and Digital Modernization

first page of letter

On March 4, AdvaMed submitted a response to a U.S. House of Representatives Healthy Futures Task Force, Modernization Subcommittee (the Modernization Subcommittee) Request for Information (RFI) on the utilization of wearable technologies, expansion of telemedicine, and digital modernization efforts in the U.S. healthcare system. The Modernization Subcommittee requested information from stakeholders on expanding telehealth after the COVID-19 public health emergency and other questions on how wearable technologies improve the lives of persons with chronic conditions and disabilities, and how Medicare and Medicaid coverage and reimbursement policies affect access to these technologies. AdvaMed provided feedback on the opportunities for innovation and expansion in the use of wearable technologies through four different lenses: continuous glucose monitors; long-term continuous electrocardiographic devices; wearable cardioverter defibrillators; and chronic respiratory disease devices.
