Calling All Members: Submit Your Comments on "Meaningful Use" Today!

The federal government’s proposed regulations for "meaningful use" and EHR certification do not explicitly recognize the value of the dictation-transcription process for documenting healthcare encounters or the importance of patient narratives for clinical decision-making. Given these concerning omissions, we need as many AHDI and MTIA members as possible to submit comments asking the federal government to acknowledge the medical transcription sector as a vital contributor to quality of care, patient safety, and successful EHR adoption. Click here for instructions on how to support this important advocacy effort. (Note that this request is in addition to our letter writing campaign for Advocacy Summit already underway, so if at all possible, please help with both efforts.)
