Statement by Anders Gilberg, Senior Vice President, Government Affairs on ONC and CMS interoperability rules
"MGMA supports the Administration’s efforts to facilitate new opportunities for medical practices to share health information with their patients via user-friendly apps. We’re pleased to see CMS’s new hospital admission, discharge, and/or transfer notification requirements, which will better position physician practices to succeed in value-based payment arrangements.
"MGMA is concerned that the ONC rule permits EHR vendors to push API costs onto providers. We will lead industry efforts to protect medical groups from potentially excessive EHR upgrade fees to ensure limited practice resources are not diverted from patient care."
