Help fix electronic health records
Electronic health records should simplify the medical record keeping process and improve accessibility by moving records online where they can be shared by patients and medical professionals. Unfortunately, recent government regulations have placed new, additional burdens on the medical record keeping process resulting in physicians spending more and more time at their computers and less time with their patients.
Medicare's so-called "meaningful use" (MU) regulations for physicians, while well intended, are actually interfering in many ways with the patient-physician relationship.
Make your voice heard in our nation's capital – it's time to break the red tape and stop regulations from interfering with the doctor-patient relationship. Let's let doctors be doctors!
