Well, that's the way it used to be.
But not now.
The new rules—from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Office of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology—require all electronic health record systems, or EHRs, certified under Stage 3 of the Meaningful Use program to allow users to record, change, and access structured data on sexual orientation and gender identity. This requirement is part of the 2015 edition “demographics” certification criterion and adds sexual orientation and gender identity data to the 2015 edition base EHR definition, which is part of the definition of certified EHR technology, or CEHRT. - American ProgressTranslation.
Your doctor will ask about your sexual orientation, "gender identity", how often you engage in sexual activity, what type of sexual activity, how many partners ........
Washington and your doctor will know more about you than your own mother.
Isn't that refreshing?
