We commend you and your teams at the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for convening this group and for your commitment to reduce the level of administrative burden in medical group practices. We have long been a champion for increased efficiency in the care delivery process and look forward to working closely with you both to achieve this mutual goal.
