Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) was honored by the Healthcare Leadership Council as a “Champion of Healthcare Innovation.” The award recognizes Congressman Peters’ support of patient-centered medical progress and work to protect Medicare choices for seniors. 

“As we work to make the healthcare system more innovative and responsive to the needs of patients, we must also ensure that San Diego’s seniors are able to access the Medicare coverage that they depend on and have earned,” said Rep. Peters. “San Diego is home to numerous companies that are creating new technologies to improve wireless medicine and enhance the quality of care. Congress should support these efforts that will help generations of seniors, instead of miring needed advancements in unnecessary red tape.”

“In Congress, Representative Peters has been a champion of using wireless technology to elevate healthcare quality and cost-efficiency and he has been a leader in improving access to healthcare for seniors through Medicare Advantage,” said Mary R. Grealy, President of the Healthcare Leadership Council. “We applaud him for his dedication to patients and healthcare consumers, and to an innovative and sustainable healthcare system.”

Throughout his time in Congress, Congressman Peters has fought to bring more innovative technologies to the healthcare system, particularly for veterans, as a way to improve patient care and outcomes while reducing inefficiency. Rep. Peters has also been a consistent advocate against cuts to the Medicare Advantage program.
