ACR Comments on CMS/ONC RFI on Advancing Interoperability and Health Information Exchange

On April 15, the American College of Radiology submitted comments to the HHS Office of the National Coordinator for HIT and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services regarding the March 7 Request for Information (RFI) on interoperability and health information exchange.

ACR’s comments focused on concerns regarding closed EHR donor-recipient exchange relationships facilitated, in part, by a combination of confusion with weak implementation of the interoperability prerequisite to the 2006 EHR exception/safe harbor to self-referral/anti-kickback requirements.  The ACR provided recommendations that would push EHR donors to fully enable donation recipients to exchange with imaging providers outside of donors’ systems.
