CMS looks to reduce physician paperwork

Physician Practice Insider, November 15, 2016

Physicians overburdened by growing paperwork and other administrative tasks may see relief on the horizon. CMS announced an initiative that aims to increase physician engagement and satisfaction by reducing paperwork.

The initiative, led by CMS physicians, will review existing policies and regulations and hold meetings with local physicians at CMS regional offices. Along with the review process, CMS is launching an 18-month pilot program to reduce medical reviews for physicians practicing in specific advanced alternative payment models. The agency may then consider expanding the program to other practices.
