In response to ONC’s appeal for information, the Consumer Partnership for eHealth explains why the agency must take sufferers into consideration in their MACRA interoperability measures.
The Consumer Partnership for eHealth (CPeH) has joined the several other healthcare associations which have contributed comments to ONC regarding interoperability measures under MACRA, saying that these measures should also include provisions to engage patients.
In a letter addressed to ONC’s Karen DeSalvo, the agencies included in CPeH explained that the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act must take into account patients and caregivers because they are integral players in health information exchange.
“Just seeking at interoperability among certified electronic health record (EHR) systems and meaningful EHR users does not capture the spectrum of core populations and uses under MACRA,” the letter says. “Patient and family caregivers, too, are key exchange partners when receiving, using and contributing new information that helps provide a complete picture of their health.”
