Health Data Management, January 28, 2011

Legislation introduced in the U.S. House and initially sponsored by nearly three-quarters of the Republican caucus clearly appears to seek repeal of the Medicare/Medicaid electronic health record meaningful use incentive payment programs. But whether the bill also would repeal all of the HITECH Act within the economic stimulus law is unclear. The bill also would prohibit appropriations of funds to carry out any programs under the health care reform law, and a related law designated to "fix" components of the reform law.
