The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has rejected the idea of metadata standards. Saying they believe more work needs to be done to verify the standards before they are implemented, they practically scolded the Department of Health and Human Services over their plans to include metadata standards in Meaningful Use Stage 2.

We found this interesting news on Information Week in their article, “IT Executives Reject Meaningful Use Metadata Standards.” This comes at a time when many changes are underway in healthcare. IT management and healthcare professionals across the country are ramping up projects to create their ICD-10 plan as the December 13, 2013 deadline date nears.

Many widely used tagging systems lack the user friendly interface and may not implement a rigorous ANSI compliant coding subsystem. Access Innovations’ solutions are ANSI compliant and implement state-of-the-art technology to speed tagging and reduce errors.
