AMA and 36 medical societies have called for decreasing the impact of meaningful use needs on EHR interoperability under MACRA.
A group of 37 medical societies have asserted the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology to move away from using meaningful use requirements for data exchange as a means of measuring EHR interoperability as part of MACRA implementation.
Led by the American Medical Association, the group submitted its comments in reaction to an ONC request for information (RFI) for assessing interoperability under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), and its low choice of EHR interoperability under meaningful use is very much palpable.
“Despite claims by several health IT vendors that their products are interoperable, the vast majority mere exchange static documents in a manner that satisfies minimum Meaningful Use (MU) needs,” the letter states.
“Many in health care view this level of exchange as little more than digital faxing,” We’re therefore concerned that both the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) are misinterpreting the present use of health IT as a benchmark for successful interoperability.”
