The AHA encourages all hospitals to complete the eighth annual Information Technology Supplement to the AHA Annual Survey. The survey was mailed to hospital CEOs this month for their chief information officer to complete on paper or online by Dec. 28. "Even if your hospital has not adopted any or all of the specific technologies in the survey, your answers are helpful as we carefully monitor the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ implementation of incentive programs on meaningful use of electronic health records, which will be followed by penalties in 2015 and later," AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack notes in the survey cover letter.
