Trump Administration’s Patients Over Paperwork Delivers for Doctors
Posted on Monday, August 5, 2019 12:57 PM
CMS is proposing major changes so that doctors can spend more time with their patients and less time on paperwork. CMS’s annual changes to the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program are aimed at reducing burden, recognizing clinicians for the time they spend with patients, removing unnecessary measures and making it easier for them to be on the path towards value-based care. The proposed rule will build on the Trump Administration’s efforts to establish a patient-driven healthcare system that focuses on better health outcomes and is projected to save 2.3 million hours per year in burden reduction.
“Clinicians are drowning in paperwork and reporting requirements caused by cumbersome government rules and regulations,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma. “These administrative costs add to the total cost of delivering healthcare, which means physicians often have to hire extra staff and spend more time complying with requirements instead of with their patients.”
