Friday, April 6, 2018

WATERLOO, Iowa – The VGM Group and its membership has been invited to participate in a CMS work group on electronic medical documentation. VGM will represent DMEPOS providers in the work group, which will have representation from several different provider groups. “While the concept of electronic medical records is not new, this initiative of utilizing technology to allow providers the opportunity to easily communicate and receive proper patient documentation is something that the DME industry struggles to gain from other provider communities,” VGM stated. “We look forward to sharing the developments and engaging with our membership to offer proper feedback as these standards are set.” The work group seeks to, among other things, establish pilot programs with providers to demonstrate secure exchange of health information, and support adoption of real-world use cases to advance secure and standardized electronic data exchange for medical documentation requests and responses.
