MacArthur Receives Healthcare Innovation Award
Washington, DC – Congressman Tom MacArthur today announced he has received the “Champion of Healthcare Innovation” award from the Healthcare Leadership Council.
The Healthcare Leadership Council (HLC) is a coalition of leaders of the nation’s premier health care companies and organizations. The “Champion of Healthcare Innovation” award is presented to legislators that support the development of new cures, treatments and technologies to increase longevity, conquer disease and make long-term hospitalizations less common.
“We’re on the verge of a remarkable era in American healthcare. Genomic and biologic research, improved data analytics, and advanced mobile technologies are enabling people to live longer, healthier lives,” said HLC President Mary R. Grealy. “To continue this exciting transformation, we need visionary leadership and sound policymaking. We honored Representative MacArthur for providing important advocacy and leadership for patients and consumers.”
“As we strive to conquer illness, help our citizens be the healthiest they can be and make our healthcare system more affordable and sustainable, the answer lies in dynamic and continual innovation,” said Congressman MacArthur. “I believe the federal government must insist on practical, common-sense solutions to make our healthcare system more patient-centered and effective.”
