The Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT today released for comment a draft strategy on reducing regulatory and administrative burden related to the use of health information technology and electronic health records. The 21st Century Cures Act instructed HHS to identify, through consultation with stakeholders, ways to reduce regulatory and administrative burdens relating to EHR use. The draft report outlines three overarching goals: reduce the effort and time required to record health information in EHRs; reduce the effort and time required to meet regulatory reporting requirements; and improve EHR functionality and ease of use. HHS will accept comments on the report through Jan. 28.
