This week, Mark and Margaret speak with Dr. Peter Basch, a Senior Fellow for Health IT Policy with the Center for American Progress, and a Visiting Scholar with the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform of the Brookings Institution. He represents the American College of Physicians at the Physicians' EHR Coalition, which he co-founded in 2004. He is currently serving on the Quality Measures Workgroup of the HIT Policy Committee. Dr. Basch is also a recipient of the HIMSS Physician IT Leadership Award.
Dr. Basch speaks to an issue that plagues many clinicians in practice: adhering to Meaninful Use requirements set forth in the HITECH Act and associated regulations.
