Dec. 9, 2019: MGMA signs on to letter to CMS urging improved patient matching

Advocacy Letter - December 11, 2019

December 9, 2019

Seema Verma
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

Washington, DC 20201

Dear Administrator Verma:

We applaud your commitment and leadership to creating an interoperable healthcare system in which patients can access their data when, where and how they want it. As you articulated earlier this year at HIMSS19, patient identity and record matching is a “critical issue that has plagued data-sharing efforts for years, and we must find a solution.” We appreciate your willingness to have the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) be a leader on this critical patient safety and interoperability issue and we share your vision for a patient-centric healthcare system.
