HHS seeks comments on model EHR anti-fraud standards

The Department of Health and Human Services is seeking public comments through Jan. 22--that's next Monday--on a draft set of standards to sniff out fraud in billing claims and reports produced by electronic health records. Among the recommendations presented by contractor RTI International, EHR users should keep a standardized audit to make it easy for government investigators to spot malfeasance. Needless to say, some privacy advocates are crying foul, but that's why there's a public comment period.
