- Full Report:
Legislation has been proposed which would establish a Federal Medical Resources Sharing Committee to ensure the most efficient and effective use of Federal health care resources. The bill closely parallels legislation that GAO had recommended in 1978. It specifically addresses obstacles precluding or inhibiting interagency sharing of medical resources among Federal agencies. If effectively implemented, it should promote substantially increased sharing of health care resources and corresponding savings to the Government. GAO would support congressional passage of this bill.
