Next Tuesday Regina Holliday and I are among those testifying to the Health IT Policy Committee’s workgroup on Meaningful Use.  Please help me decide what to submit for my testimony.

My session is Panel 2:  Incorporating Patient-Generated Data in Meaningful Use of HIT. Questions:

a. What is the role of patient-generated data in improving health of individuals?  What is the evidence?

b. How can patient-reported data be integrated into EHRs and the clinicians’ workflow to improve care management?

c. How can future conceptions of personal health information platforms and information tools facilitate patient-centered care, including transparency, coordinated care, patient activation, while protecting patient privacy?
d. What is the role of the patient in ensuring data in EHRs is accurate?

e. What are your recommendations for meaningful use criteria for 2013 and 2015 that are achievable by a broad spectrum of providers?

What should they hear?  Comment please!

They always welcome additional thoughts beyond the specified questions, so fire away.
