As ordered reported by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on July 30, 2014
H.R. 5214 would require the Secretary of Health and Human Services to make recommendations for the development and use of clinical data registries for the improvement of patient care. The legislation would direct the Secretary to post such recommendations on the agency’s website.
CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have no significant effect on spending subject to appropriation. Enacting H.R. 5214 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 5214 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would not affect the budget of state, local, or tribal governments.
