Hospital Associations' Joint Letter to HHS on Interoperability Conditions of Participation

CHA and six allied hospital associations sent a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar expressing strong concerns with the administration’s possible addition of interoperability requirements in the Medicare and Medicaid Conditions of Participation (CoPs). The letter, jointly signed by America’s Essential Hospitals, the American Hospital Association, the Association of American Medical Colleges, the Catholic Health Association, the Federation of American Hospitals, the National Association for Behavioral Healthcare, and CHA, urges HHS to find other ways to advance information exchange between providers, community entities and families rather than imposing additional regulatory requirements through new CoPs.
