Deadline 28th Feb: Letter to Congress on EHR Usability

The MedStar Health National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare has authored a letter to Congress urging them to ensure safety is prioritized in the EHR Reporting Program that is already mandated by the 21st Century Cures Act. You can read that Act here and search “Sec. 3009A. Electronic Health Record Reporting Program” for the related information.

Complete the form by Feb. 28, 2019 to have your name included on this letter. They're focused on encouraging collective action this month—the 10-year anniversary of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act that prompted the near universal adoption of EHRs—so healthcare providers, patients, policymakers, and EHR vendors can all play our part in helping realize the tremendous potential of EHRs over the next decade.
