So You Heard Meaningful Use is Ending...

by Stephanie Zaremba, Director of Government and Regulatory Affairs

As you may have heard by now, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Andy Slavitt recently announced that “the Meaningful Use program as it has existed, will now be effectively over and replaced with something better.” And if you are a clinician who has been diligently measuring and reporting your every click for the past few years, you likely have some questions: It’s over? What prompted this shift? What will these changes look like? When will they be implemented? Does this mean your days of box-checking are finally over?

Meaningful Use: When the Exemption Becomes the Norm

by Dan Haley, SVP and General Counsel

Providers trying to keep up with the recent twists and turns of the federal Meaningful Use (MU) program could be forgiven an inclination to the proverbial long walk off a short pier. In the latest round of semi-insanity, CMS finally published the modified MU Stage 2 rule in October 2015, which is intended to apply to... 2015. In a rare mass coupling of stakeholder lions and lambs, provider groups and health IT vendor organizations alike rose up in unison and declared, in so many words, "Dude! That's just nuts."

Bolstering the Public Health Network

by Lindsay Mello, Healthcare Transactions Manager

The measles outbreak that occurred at Disneyland in March thrust vaccinations into the headlines, bringing to the forefront the impact that they can have on the public health of America.

The Forecast for Health Reform Post-SGR Repeal: Sunny or Stormy?

by Stephanie Zaremba, Director of Government and Regulatory Affairs

The 10-plus-year Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) debacle is over. For years, physicians have watched the same scene play out year after year: the SGR formula threatens automatic Medicare reimbursement cuts of up to 25%. Congress, having no intention of forcing physicians take such a drastic pay cut for caring for our nation’s senior citizens, passes a temporary “patch” to prevent the cuts from taking effect. This annual ritual became known as the “doc fix.”

A Reluctant Specialist Joins the EHR Ranks

by Jay Fleitman, MD, pulmonary specialist

After 30 years of using paper charts, I did not want to computerize my records. Don't get me wrong, I love computers, but most of my colleagues hated their . To make matters worse, the pricing I received from the bids I was getting from various systems’ vendors was prohibitive.

The Real Way to Talk About Interoperability

by John Voith, Director of Transaction Services

In an  about interoperability, I highlighted the wide range of technical standards that exist, HL7, DICOM, ISO, IHE, and so on. The health care industry sometimes gets hung up on the standards and doesn’t focus on what really matters: enabling providers and patients to complete particular "" through interoperability. Among those jobs, the most important is sharing patient charts between providers, regardless of location, for the purposes of improving patient care.
