Title

National Clinical Care Commission Act

Official Title

To amend the Public Health Service Act to foster more effective implementation and coordination of clinical care for people with a complex metabolic or autoimmune disease, a disease resulting from insulin deficiency or insulin resistance, or complications caused by such a disease, and for other purposes.

Summary

(This measure has not been amended since it was introduced. The summary has been expanded because action occurred on the measure.) National Clinical Care Commission Act (Sec. 2) This bill amends the Public Health Service Act to establish within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) a National Clinical Care Commission to evaluate and recommend solutions regarding better coordination and leveraging of federal programs that relate to supporting clinical care for individuals with complex metabolic or autoimmune disease, diabetes, or complications caused by such diseases. The duties of the commission include: evaluating HHS programs regarding the utilization of preventive health benefits, identifying current activities and gaps in federal efforts to support clinicians in providing integrated care, making recommendations regarding the development and coordination of federally funded clinical practice support tools, recommending clinical pathways for new technologies and treatments, evaluating and expanding education and awareness activities provided to health care professionals, and reviewing and recommending methods for outreach and dissemination of educational resources. The commission must submit an operating plan to HHS and Congress within 90 days of its first meeting. The commission is terminated after it submits a final report, but not later than the end of FY2021.

    Until we can improve the progress of diabetes in our population this is a growing concern for patients suffering from this disease. Preventing catastrophic events outweigh the cost of treating them.

    Great idea, how will we pay for it?

    As someone with IBS and chronic fatigue syndrome, I know that getting care for complicated conditions that have no easy diagnosis and no cure is a nightmare. Anything we can do to help is worth it.

    This sounds like a backdoor run for AID/HIV treatment. Feel sorry for those that contracted it due to transfusions or medical procedure. I have no desire to spend tax dollars on those that got it from drug use or homophobic behavior or promiscuous behavior.

    I am generally for this bill but the phrase “or other purposes” leaves a lot to be interpreted. I think this bill needs to be a bit more specific and it should be passed.

    As someone with a constellation of autoimmune, lung, blood and other diseases, I know how hard it is for doctors to understand the interrelated areas and the impact each has on the others. We need help!

    This is a non-regulatory way for the U.S. Department of HHS to determine trends in the Nation's Population. Also any way for an amendment to improve on a system and reduce regulations is good by me!
