AHDI West – Petition to Legislators for Transcription in Meaningful Use

Hello:  Take a look at Jay’s latest post on AHDI Lounge.  He draws attention to ADHI West’s online petition to consider transcription as a valued part of Meaningful Use….

AHDI-West Online Petition Advocates For Inclusion  Of  MT  In Meaningful Use Criteria

The Western Region of the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI-West) has created an online petition directed at federal legislators:

We petition your continued support in these urgent times by communicating with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, seeking acknowledgment in regulations that the dictation-transcription process and structured narrative reports are recognized as vital elements of electronic health records (EHR), are included in the definition of “meaningful use”, and recognized as essential for ensuring patient safety.

The petition can be electronically signed online.

Thanks AHDI West for taking such an important step! And thanks as always to Jay for bringing it to our attention.
