SCAI and Multiple Societies Sign on to Address Concerns Over Interoperability

from SCAI

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) recently released a request of information (RFI) on how to measure interoperability across health care environments. The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) directs HHS to work with the health care community and technology developers to establish metrics to determine if, and to what extent, interoperability exists nationwide.

SCAI signed on with multiple medical associations in regard to overarching concerns with the actions that both the ONC and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are taking to improve interoperability. SCAI and the signing organizations are concerned that without significant changes to the health information technology measures themselves, electronic health record vendors will continue to develop products that meet federal reporting requirements rather than the needs of patients and physicians.
