AHA today commented on the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics’ draft predictability roadmap, which proposes how the Department of Health and Human Services could improve the development, adoption and implementation of administrative standards and operating rules under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. “Specifically, we agree there is a need to improve industry compliance with the standards and operating rules; improve oversight and governance; increase innovation; and increase membership and diversity of participants in the standards development workgroups,” AHA wrote. “However, we believe some of the proposed recommendations are not clear and could have unintended consequences on the standards and operating rules regulatory process and the stakeholders that use them.”
