Vizient Commends Presidential Action to Sign ACE Kids Act into Law

IRVING, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Vizient today
commended President Trump for signing into law the Advancing Care for
Exceptional (ACE) Kids Act. The law, which was recently approved by
overwhelming bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate, will expand
care options and promote enhanced care coordination for children who
have complex medical needs. Vizient formally endorsed the ACE Kids Act,
and is pleased to see it signed into law.

The law will expand pediatric specific care models and provide
incentives for states to voluntarily participate in the creation of
enhanced pediatric health homes. It will also allow for better access to
care coordination, including for out-of-state care, and spur innovation
and the sharing of best practices and data between states.

“Vizient is pleased to see that this common-sense legislation, which
received overwhelming bipartisan support in Congress, was signed into
law by President Trump. This law will support new options to provide for
greater care coordination and improve outcomes for some of our country’s
most vulnerable pediatric patients. We applaud Congress and the
President for finalizing this important policy improvement to expand
care options, improve outcomes and reduce health care costs,” said Shoshana
Krilow
, vice president, public policy and government relations for
Vizient.

Vizient is the nation’s largest health care performance improvement
company serving a diverse membership that includes academic medical
centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health
care delivery networks and non-acute health care providers.
