Advocacy Summit - Transcription and Meaningful Use for EHR Adoption

R+B Sten-Tel sent Peter Minio down to Washington DC last week to participate in the AHDI/MTIA 5th Annual Advocacy Summit and speak about issues with Congress on behalf of the sector.  He was joined by members of AHDI and MTIA from around the country.  Peter had a great time in Washington, meeting with many of the healthcare and legislative aids of our Senators and Representatives.  He even received a personal tour of the Capitol by Congressman Glenn Thompson.

The objective was simply to encourage the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONCHIT) to acknowledge in the regulations that the dictation-transcription process is a viable means by which to achieve “meaningful use” and that certified EHR systems should be able to receive structured narrative reports from the dictation-transcription process.  Read the full press release.
