Epic, Oracle Cerner + 28 other EHR vendors ask HHS to delay prior authorization rulemaking

Epic, Oracle Cerner and other EHR vendors have asked HHS to extend the public comment period for a new rule to streamline the electronic transmission of prior authorizations.

The EHR Association sent a letter to CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure in February asking the agency to push back the deadline for comments by at least 45 days after ONC's proposal has been published.

"Without a clear understanding of those impending EHR developers' obligations, it is not possible for the EHR Association, our member companies, or our clients to offer appropriate, robust feedback to the CMS proposed rule," wrote association chair David Bucciferro, of Foothold Technology, and vice chair William Hayes, MD, of CPSI.

The association also includes such EHR vendors as Meditech, eClinicalWorks, Athenahealth, Altera Digital Health and Veradigm (formerly Allscripts).
