Is the HITECH Act Constitutional?

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

HITECH and Electronic Medical Records. The Near has become HERE.

Much discussion has taken place about Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and the HITECH Act (Healthcare Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) and the effects it will have on healthcare in this country. The health IT industry, anticipating a gold rush, has been united in its support of EMR adoption, while the government claims that EMR use will lead to an increase in quality, a decrease in costs, and an overall improvement in patient care. On the other side of the coin, some folks disagree with these claims and feel that overall the push to for EMR adoption will be disenfranchising for physicians, most of who could see monetary losses as well as changing the way that they document patient encounters.

In the midst of this discussion, several opponents have questioned the constitutionality of the HITECH Act regarding the mandate for use of Electronic Medical Records, citing the so called “commerce clause” contained within Article I, section 8 of the Constitution. The commerce clause allows for regulations assigned to economic activity that involve the production, distribution, or consumption of commodities. With the HITECH Act, the administration and Congress appear to be working under a open interpretation of the commerce clause that allows regulation and control of just about everything, including EMR systems. Can a doctor-patient encounter and the use of Electronic Medical Records be regarded as economic activity? What about the penalties that will be levied should a doctor not use Electronic Medical Records? Yes, the HITECH Act comes complete with assigned timeframes, EMR systems requirements and a monetary incentive/penalty program.

The founding fathers sought to restrain power grabs from the central government, but creative “work arounds” abound. The HITECH Act does serve as well intentioned a vision for improved patient care and healthcare cost savings, but the legality of the HITECH Act casts a long shadow. It may raise flags not only because of the limits Congress has on the power to regulate doctor-patient encounters (recall the commerce clause), but also because HITECH appears to function as a prohibited bill that may violate the individual rights of physicians and patients.

Electronic Medical Records, HITECH and Your Health Information

Electronic Medical Records, HITECH and Your Health Information

Does Bureaucracy Inhibit Innovation?

In case you have not heard, the Economic Stimulus program that passed in 2009 includes a little something called the Healthcare Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) funded in excess of 20 Billion dollars.
Your doctor is now required to computerize your Personal Health Records. All of them. Boom!
Gone will be your current paper medical charts. But where will they go? Scanned and computerized for easy access and review. And why?
The current administration has claimed that “To improve the quality of our healthcare while lowering it’s costs, we will make the immediate investments necessary to ensure that all of America’s medical records are computerized”.
While productivity and efficiency is a necessary goal, who is to decide how to accomplish such an initiative?
Much as the Transportation and Security Administration (TSA) claims that upon purchasing a ticket for air travel, you may well than “give up a lot of rights”. Will this hold true for your medical information?
In the move to enforce compliance of HITECH and physician adoption of Electronic Medical Records, some immediate barriers to this initiative have become evident. Among them: doctors are not moving as fast as the money is flowing; the healthcare market already is positioned to deliver on what HITECH demands; any “preferred EMR systems” in good favor of Health Information Exchanges (HIE’s) would hinder free market choices.
Is it fair to use regulation as a way to bypass legislation? Or just let bureaucrats decide? The US Healthcare system is approximately 2.5 TRILLION dollars, or 18% of the US GDP. Should measures such as our personal medical information be placed on a relative fast track who’s journey has just begun, for an outcome that is uncertain?
