MER-013: Electronic Health Records

Electronic Health Records: The Wisconsin Medical Society advocates that patients be allowed to opt out from having their records placed on Health Information Exchanges, regardless of how well-intentioned; and support patient-centered health information technology such as smart cards, which provide clinical benefits of HIT without compromising confidentiality. The Wisconsin Medical Society supports the elimination of the Physician Fee Assessment, as defined in chapter 153 of Wisconsin Statutes. (HOD, 0412)
