Modern Healthcare

The American Medical Association has asked the CMS and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at HHS to hire an outside evaluator to take a look at the federally funded electronic health-record incentive payment program.

Meanwhile, the AMA has called on the feds to stop raising the bar on payment qualification criteria until any issues raised in the evaluation are identified and publicly aired.
