FY23 Harmonization Letter

March 18, 2022

Dear Chairwoman Murray, Chairwoman DeLauro, and Ranking Members Blunt and Cole:

"As you and your colleagues work on the Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations bill, we respectfully request that you increase funding for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to continue its efforts to harmonize the reporting of clinical laboratory test results after funding the program in FY’22.

The undersigned organizations believe that every patient should have access to dependable and accurate clinical laboratory test results and that those test results should be harmonized. The CDC is doing incredible work harmonizing the results for several tests, and we believe with continued funding CDC could expand its efforts—benefiting clinicians and patients alike and contributing to overall efficiencies in public health and healthcare."
