Health IT Policy

Market research and evaluation, legislative and regulatory analysis, and guidance for industry compliance

What is Health IT Policy? Over the last few years, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) have consistently built health IT into regulatory requirements for various federal programs. Simultaneously, states are also building health IT requirements into their state level programs, like DSRIP. The tight connection between health IT and policy work is more important than ever. Our health IT policy experts understand not only the legislative and regulatory environment, they also understand the technology itself and how it is being implemented in the real-world. Our expertise is vital to helping federal and state agencies build smart program requirements, while also helping healthcare organizations implement those requirements.


How We Can Help You:

Perform Environmental Scans

We have helped numerous state and federal agencies understand what is taking place in the real-world to help agencies develop content and programs that will support healthcare organizations’ use of health IT.

Track and Analyze State and Federal Legislation and Regulations

Our health IT policy subject matter experts provide insights on how regulatory health IT requirements impact our customers. For example, we recently released a series of white papers highlighting how the 21st Century Cures Act will impact HIOs over the next few years.

Adhere to Industry Regulations

We have helped many organizations successfully attest to the Meaningful Use program as well as pass Meaningful Use audits. As the industry transitions to the Quality Payment Program, the Ai team is advising clients on how best to meet the more rigorous requirements of the program. We can also provide guidance on how to meet ONC certification requirements through our health IT solutions.
