Federal Health Board versus the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness

by jingemi

I have read through the Stimulus Package; I write about it alot more on my blog, www.healthitpolitics.com. One item in the Healthcare Section has me about concerned. The legislation calls for the creation of the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness. Contrary to my previous thoughts, it seems that some new entities will be created.

This Council exists to compare the effectiveness of healthcare delivery and practices. It sounds alot like HHS-Secretary Daschle’s idea for a Federal Healthcare Board. Now, when Secretary Daschle presents his healthcare reform package, will he still create the Healthcare Board? Won’t this create two agencies with overlapping authority and functions? Will this create unnecessary regulation of healthcare?

I think this possibility is real. I hope that Secretary Daschle addresses this issue.
