Meaningful Use Criteria - Medical Transcription Response

HHS has introduced their rules pertaining to the "meaningful use" of electronic health records.  It appears that those objectives still do not recognize the importance of the structured narrative component of a patient's record, nor the ability of our medical transcription industry to deliver dictated data in a structured format through Discrete Reportable Transcription (DRT) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies.

The Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI) has drafted comments on what these rules mean to the healthcare community and the transcription sector.  Please read the full document.
