Well if CMS was smart enough to build a national database for all health data they would have the data to work with DUH! Now in typical govt way they have made a big mistake and they will FIX it by making more work for everyone else. So more dollars NOT spent on healthcare. Has CMS even visited any Docs offices to see how complicated it is to documement a pt. visit completely? In fact in my office we collect data that CMS already has but we have it collect it anyway just cause if we do not we do not get paid. How about they do their job and Doc's get to decide if they get paid?
