21st Century Cures

Where We Stand

  • H.R. 6 passed the House in July by a vote of 344-77
  • CSRO encourages support for medical innovations that include patient and physician perspectives
  • H.R. 6 will help advance technology, treatments, and medicine for rare or unmet medical needs
  • As we continue to integrate technology, support for interoperability becomes more and more necessary

H.R. 6, also known as the 21st Century Cures Act, looks to address the future of healthcare science.  The bill encourages supprot for medical innovation and education in many areas including clinical trial modernization, investment in research, incentivizing the development of new drugs and devices, supporting data sharing, and encouraging young scientists and researchers to help develop in their field.

The bill is widely supported by physician groups including CSRO and has already passed the House by an overwhelming bi-partisan vote.  It has now gone to the Senate where it may face a larger battle.
