The bill seeks to modernize healthcare delivery for Medicare beneficiaries by removing barriers to the use of telehealth and other healthcare technologies, with the goal of improving access to high-quality care and lowering costs to the Medicare program.
HIMSS appreciated the opportunity to leverage our members’ expertise in commenting on the RFI and believes in promoting the use of health IT to improve the quality of healthcare delivery while ensuring that data collection is not an overly burdensome part of providers’ workflow.
