A large portion of the meeting focused on Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and ASA’s concerns and issues with the current “meaningful use” requirements. Administrator Berwick expressed an openness to addressing the issues anesthesiologists face with the current “meaningful use” EHR requirements. Finally, ASA discussed payment issues and other anesthesia related issues.
