Health IT regulations are too burdensome for physicians, says Price

HHS Secretary Tom Price, MD, on April 27 addressed the Trump administration's long-term plans for health IT guidance during a speech at the Health Datapalooza conference in Washington, D.C., reports the Washington Examiner.

He said the Trump administration will focus on interoperability and work to reduce the burden health IT regulations place on physicians.

"Data is absolutely crucial, don't misunderstand me," Dr. Price said, according to the Washington Examiner. "But we need our physicians to be patient-facing, not computer-facing, which is what many of them feel they are right now."
