Interoperability Roadmap Public Comments

ONC publishes all of the public comments it received on its interoperability roadmap (PDF).

ICD-10 Transition Testing Proposed

Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) introduces the ICD-TEN Act, a bill that would introduce an 18-month period during which providers could submit claims in either ICD-9 or ICD-10 format, and during which CMS would be barred from denying claims due to inaccurate ICD-10 sub-coding.

Interstate telehealth licensing compact set to become reality

A compact drafted by the Federation of State Medical Boards that would allow providers to practice medicine across state lines looks likely to be enacted. The compact was written in an effort to ease regulatory barriers to broader telemedicine adoption. The compact required that seven states formally adopt it before it would become active.  Alabama has just passed legislation adopting the compact and as soon as the Alabama governor signs the bill into law, the compact will have met its seven-state requirement and will be enacted nationally.

Currently there is "1 comment" on this Article:

  1. A small note of correction: the compact will apply in those states that have passed the compact legislation. Telehealth between those states will be facilitated by the licensure status/ Board of Medicine regulation status of physicians practicing in the states that have passed the compact legislation.
