Doctors Dissatisfied with Health Care Digitization Program

Doctors Dissatisfied with Health Care Digitization Program

In a 12/29 report from Politico, Arthur Allen explains the possible threats in 2015 to the Administration’s $30 billion program which seeks to digitize health records.  Widespread dissatisfaction amongst doctors along with a new Congress means that if physicians are unable to prove that they are communicating to provide their patients with better care, the program will be viewed by many as a failure.

Doctors who have been unable to prove “meaningful use” of the software have begun receiving fines, or having their payments cut, leaving some physician groups “fighting mad.”  A new bill signed by President Obama in December means that the Administration will begin to investigate the inadequacies of the program and may begin to decertify software doesn’t allow the records to flow smoothly.
