WASHINGTON, D.C., Sept. 26, 2006 -
Intel Chairman Craig Barrett, speaking at the eHealth Initiative's
Health Information Technology Summit, urged a dramatic change in the
way the nation administers healthcare
. Barrett called for employers to
exercise their influence as the largest purchasers of healthcare to
drive improvements in care delivery, reducing costs and improving
quality.

"The current healthcare system is
economically unsustainable and negatively impacting our nation's
ability to compete globally," said Barrett, also a member of the United
States Health and Human Services' American Health Information
Community. "It's time for a systemic transformation, and U.S. employers
must lead."
