Comment on "Reducing Administrative Burden to put Patients over Paperwork"
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, HHS, U.S. Department of the Treasury, states that it is "committed to transforming the health care delivery system--and the Medicare and Medicaid programs--by putting additional focus on patient-centered care, innovation, and outcomes. As part of our continuing Patients over Paperwork initiative, we have actively solicited feedback from the medical community through Requests for Information (RFIs), listening sessions, and clinical onsite engagements with front-line clinicians and staff to learn how our administrative requirements and processes affect their daily work and ability to innovate in care delivery." CMS has published a Federal Register notice soliciting additional public comment on ideas for regulatory, subregulatory, policy, practice, and procedural changes that reduce unnecessary administrative burdens for clinicians, providers, patients and their families. To be assured consideration, comments must be received by CMS no later than 5 p.m. on August 9, 2019.
