CMS Creates New Office for Burden Reduction

On June 23rd, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the creation of a new office, the Office of Burden Reduction and Health Informatics, to reduce unnecessary burden, increase efficiencies, continue administrative simplification, increase the use of health informatics and improve the patient experience.

With the formation of the Office of Burden Reduction and Health Informatics, CMS will continue to draw on the specialized expertise of staff, and frequent stakeholder input, to continue to explore innovative ways to address regulatory reform and burden reduction. All of these efforts will help ensure that providers and clinicians can focus their efforts on what is most important: keeping patients healthy, improving health outcomes, and enhancing patient satisfaction.
