Eric Fader was quoted in an article, "Health Tech Oversight Up in the Air in Wake of New HHS Position," published in Bloomberg BNA's Health IT Law & Industry Report. The article reports that federal oversight of health information technology policy could be in limbo with the creation of a new Department of Health and Human Services position focused on health technology and expected to be filled by former Rep. John Fleming (R-La.). The article states that during his eight years in Congress, Fleming worked closely with new HHS Secretary Tom Price, a former House Republican from Georgia. It appears the two have "remarkably similar backgrounds and world views," Fader told Bloomberg BNA. "I think Fleming's pending appointment is an indication that Price intends to prioritize HIT adoption and interoperability, and in Fleming he'll have someone who is likely to approach this complex initiative in the same provider-friendly manner that he's known to favor," Fader said. He observed that Price and Fleming appear to share the goal of removing unnecessary regulatory burdens from physicians while agreeing that the universal use and interoperability of electronic health records are necessary to boost patient care and reduce health-care costs.
