Athenahealth asked OIG to allow the market for medical information


Speaking on entrepreneurship, Athenahealth asked CMS to allow doctors to pay for each other to exchange patient information.

Health research is not effective due to technical problems but due to lack of trade, as the company directs, seeks CMS to create Stark's Anti-Kickback String and Violence, which prevents access to some seekers to a service provider if both are related to money.

If CMS's constitutional code, however, can help create a true trading market to exchange health information, the Managing Director of the Government of Athenahealth Greg Carey said in a letter to the Inspector General Office that needed information on how to make a statement. Reform your Kickback Stark Stark Law.

Carey reports on funding, insurance, and car parts such as experts and companies that allow players to pay data. "It's our experience that exchange information is best done if there is a business problem and a problem for solving," Carey said.

Sharing information is expensive, according to the company. "There is a link to building buildings and maintaining technology," said Carey for modern health. "Our program will allow the receiver to make a significant contribution to the cost earned in connection with and transmitting the media player."

The statement is that such a trade will increase the value of one-on-one business and help the designer in the payment system.

But how to do the best and how to see. "I do not see any evidence that the providers are slow to share clinical information because of stress," said Michael Burger, the leading consultant of the Point of Care Partners. Athenahealth's strategies can even be backfire, he said. "By putting money on the distribution of hospital information, if the doctor does not want to go?" They said, maybe they will go without any information, "he said. "Or they can say, fax it to me." # 39; "

The real problem of entrepreneurship is that the health system does not want patients to be donors.

In his letter to the OIG, Cerner stressed the importance of sharing information about certain payment papers. The company asked CMS and OIG to write in the EHR Safe Harbor that applicants in the Small Payment Options will be allowed to donate and receive "electronic health equipment", including human health care & 39, in charge of equipment. Residents may, for example, maintain health care facilities and hospitals for a long time.

Through the gift of EHRs and other items, CMS will "announce the availability and support of electronic health technology," which will enhance the health information exchange, according to Cerner.

Similarly, the Medical Institute of Health asks OIG to allow the developers to provide access to cybersecurity services. "Some of our members … have heard that they will be able to help the related hospitals," said Russell Branzell, Chairman and Chairman of the Healthcare Business Committee in a letter. "Many of our health systems continue to develop that cyber posters can bring threat to other providers."
