AMIA’s goal is to improve the legislative and regulatory environment for health informatics research, practice and education through AMIA member expertise. The primary pathway through which AMIA achieves this goal is by engaging Federal Agencies and Congress on public calls for input, such as Notices of Proposed Rulemakings (NPRMs) or Request for Information (RFIs). Below, AMIA responses are arranged by Federal Agency and Congressional Committee.
In comments submitted to CMS, AMIA supported continued policymaking to implement the Medicare AUC Program as part of the 2017 Physician Fee Schedule. The organization strongly recommended CMS target a 2019 implementation deadline, rather than the proposed 2018 start.
