CMS Chief Answers Some Tough Questions

On American Medical News, a report on a meeting of the AMA National Advocacy Conference found CMS Administrator Donald Berwick, MD, answering some tough questions, including the effect that some reimbursement cuts have had on certain specialties and challenges to EMR adoption.

Also on the agenda was David Blumenthal, MD, the outgoing national health information technology chief (ONCHIT), who states that “physicians who fail to invest in EMRs will see their practices decline in value relative to colleagues who do invest” and that “they also will face more difficulty recruiting young physicians and attracting patients who will expect such technology.”
