AHA today urged the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to extend the May 3 comment deadline for their proposed rules related to interoperability by at least 30 days. “The additional time would afford all stakeholders the opportunity to fully understand the scope of the proposed rules and provide thoughtful input on how best to shape the interoperability landscape for decades to come,” AHA said, noting that the rules “include a complex set of policies that propose significant changes for many health care stakeholders.”
