CMS Meaningful Use Comment Letter
NRHA has submitted its comments to CMS regarding the proposed regulations to implement portions of the HITECH section of ARRA. NRHA's letter outlines our support for the widespread adoption of HIT in rural areas but we are very concerned that many rural providers will not be able to access any of the incentive money. For this reason, we lay out suggestions that would make HITECH program more "rural friendly." The comments are due today at 5:00 pm ET. Please submit a comment and feel free to use our letter as a guide.
