CVS' Roberts addresses nonprofit to discuss healthcare IT solutions


WASHINGTON CVS Caremark has announced that Jon Roberts, senior vice president and chief information officer for CVS Caremark, is addressing on Thursday the Bipartisan Policy Center’s The Leader’s Project on the State of American Health Care about how health information technology solutions, such as e-prescribing, can help improve health system efficiencies and patient safety.

Roberts also will discuss how government policy can promote and support the success of these technologies through the development of physician incentives for e-prescribing, the creation of grants and tax incentives for the purchase of information technology equipment and the elimination of current barriers in the area of e-prescribing for controlled substances.

The Leader’s Project on the State of American Health Care convenes for the first time Thursday in Washington, D.C. to begin the discussion on how to develop the appropriate policy foundation to address the challenges facing the health care system.

The Leader’s Project is led by four former Senate majority leaders Bob Dole, R-Kan.; George Mitchell, D-Maine; Howard Baker, R-Tenn.; and Tom Daschle, D-S.D. Daschle is hosting Thursday’s forum.
