#CuresNOW the New Patient-Focused Act That Plans to Advance Medical Research
The 21st Century Cures Act plans to accelerate the discovery, development, and delivery of new treatments and cures.
The National Institute of Health will receive $4.8 billion in funding to help expedite the Precision Medicine Initiative, advance cancer research, the BRAIN Initiative, and other bipartisan health issues.
Some of the cutting-edge cures will look to progress new therapies by updating clinical trials, putting patients first in regulatory review processes, utilizing biomarkers to assess how a therapy develops, setting up efficient regulations for medical software and medicine, and supplying the FDA with $500 million for regulatory updates and recruiting.
Advancing health reforms for the mental health crisis has also been given a lot of effort. The Cures Act is heavily focused on the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act. These reforms will benefit the mental health system by opening a new position for a new Health and Substance Assistant Secretary, grant making, expending the Assisted Outpatient Treatment, and reducing government spending by $5 million.
