The draft report focuses on common sources of burden, including clinical documentation, health IT usability and user experience, EHR reporting programs, and public health reporting. AHIMA’s comments included support for the report’s recommendation that “copy and paste” policies should be in place at the institutional level that balance efficacy with safety.
