What is this?

The U.S. Healthcare Efficiency Index is a forum for raising awareness and monitoring business efficiency in healthcare. The index seeks to provide a national reference to track and measure the transition from a paper-based healthcare system to an electronic one. The Index will include an outside auditor and an independent Advisory Council made up of leaders across the Industry.

We all agree that paper is costly, inefficient and prone to errors. While we wait for national reforms and the adoption of electronic medical records, let's address the billions of dollars that can be saved through simple steps like electronic payments and remittances.
