Editor’s Note: Peter Orszag, vice-chair of corporate and investment banking at Citigroup and a former director of the Office of Management and Budget in the Obama Administration, has written commentary for Bloomberg News on a provision in the Fiscal Cliff law to advance physician use of clinical registries. Section 601(b) of the law, on pages 84-88, enables physicians to opt out of other quality reporting requirements if they participate in a federally qualified clinical data registry.
