Statement Type Regulatory Comment

AMIA submitted comments to HHS on the Common Format, Device or Medical/Surgical Supply, including HIT Devices. The comments address patient safety data collections and event reporting. Failures with HIT devices are different from those associated with other devices and warrant a distinct form and classification for reporting failures. AMIA submits recommendations and proposals to develop common formats related to tracking HIT patient safety issues.
