AHIC Advises HHS to Build Regulatory Compliance of EHRs

The American Health Information Community (AHIC) issued a recommendation to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), urging HHS to promote electronic health records (EHR) compliance.

AHIC encourages the creation of EHR templates to reduce redundancy in information collection. AHIC also encourages HHS to convene a panel of experts who can determine what licensing, regulatory, quality, and payment data should be included in EHR templates. These templates would be stored in a database accessible to the public.
