HHS Expands Vision on Alzheimer's National Action Plan

Back in January, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that it was creating a national action plan against Alzheimer's disease. Now they're offering additional details.

A draft released by the HHS on Wednesday calls for:
  • Registries to better direct Alzheimer's patients into clinical trials
  • Establishing a national inventory of research investments
  • Private partners to work with government officials in formulating evidence-based guidelines for Alzheimer's care
  • Creating a national clearinghouse to publicize the above-mentioned guidelines
  • Analyzing healthcare entities and accountable care organizations for outcomes among Alzheimer's patients
