Dear Mr. Mostashari,
On behalf of the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS), I am pleased to submit the following comments on the Health Information Technology (HIT) Policy Committee’s vision of Stage 3 of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program. Our comments focus on the objectives proposed for the Core and Menu Measures and the proposed options for reporting Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs). The AAO-HNS represents over 12,000 physicians in the United States who diagnose and treat disorders of the ears, nose, throat, and related structures of the head and neck. The medical ailments treated by this specialty are the most common that afflict all Americans, old and young, including hearing loss, balance disorders, chronic ear infection, rhinological disorders, snoring and sleep disorders, swallowing disorders, facial and cranial nerve disorders, and head and neck cancer.
