Comments to the Senate Finance Committee on Health Data Transparency
Earlier this summer, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR) and senior Finance Committee member Chuck Grassley (R-IA) asked the public for comments on health care data transparency, including what data sources should be made more broadly available and what barriers stand in the way of stakeholders using data more effectively. The Center for Data Innovation submitted comments recommending that federal agencies make taxpayer-funded medical research data accessible in a timely manner, federal health care programs release granular payments data, and federal research agencies encourage data sharing across the health care industry.
