CMS proposes electronic health record incentive program modifications to Meaningful Use in 2015?2017

Physician Practice Insider, May 5, 2015

On April 15, CMS posted a proposed rule in the Federal Register that would change the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program reporting period in 2015 to a 90-day period aligned with the calendar year. CMS also proposed aligning the EHR reporting period in 2016 with the calendar year. In addition, this proposed rule would modify the patient action measures in the Stage 2 objectives related to patient engagement. It would also streamline the program by removing reporting requirements on measures that have become redundant, duplicative, or topped out through advancements in EHR function and provider performance for Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. Comments are due June 15.
