Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 2511: Improving Health Information Technology Act   [open pdf - 36KB]

"S. [Senate Bill] 2511 would require the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to strengthen federal efforts related to the adoption and certification of health information technology (HIT), the exchange of electronic health data between different HIT systems, and the transmission of electronic health data to patients and to registries that collect data about individuals with specific medical conditions. Additionally, the Comptroller General would be required to issue several reports to Congress. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing S. 2511 would cost $122 million over the 2017-2021 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary funds."
