CMS Administrator, Seema Verma,  has announced the initiative to ease the burden of records and reporting management in medical pracctices.  Nationally, medical providers and staff typically spend a disproportionate amount of time on maintaining medical records in comparison to actual patient care.

“On a typical day, primary care doctors spent about 27% of their time on “meaningful patient care” and about 49% on administrative activities, he said, according to a 2016 study published in Annals of Internal Medicine.”

The new initiative, “Patients Over Paperwork,”  seems to be set to review current regulations and eliminate those that may not be adding to quality of care, or possibly unnecessary altogether.  The coming steps to be taken have the potential, in the long run, to lower today’s healthcare costs, increase efficiency and benefit both the healthcare industry and the people in America directly.  Source:  Medpage.
