CMS Launches new E-Health Website


CMS was at the 2013 HIMSS Meeting in New Orleans and representatives from CMS were on hand to discuss the new CMS E-Health Website. The site includes resources for providers to assist with understanding how to implement Health Information Technology. This site is coupled with a listserv that is intended to become “single source” of information on coordinating efforts toward implementing ICD-10, EHRs and meaningful use, operating standards, electronic quality measurement, and payment models.

Articles on the site include How ICD 10 and Administrative Simplification can support eHealth, Privacy and Security's Role in the eHealth Transformation, and EHR Incentive Programs: Moving into the Next Stage.

At CMEonline we will be closely monitoring this site as well as the CMS listserv to keep you informed on all of the latest updates in the world of Health Information Technology and eHealth.
