Don’t miss out on what’s happening in 2016 with Meaningful Use!
Providers that wait until 2016 to review what they need to be doing for meaningful use in 2016 may miss the mark!
Remember that unless you are in your first year of participating in the EHR Incentive Program (Meaningful Use), providers will be required to attest for the entire calendar year of 2016. Since there are certain measures that require providers to attest that the functionality was enabled the entire reporting period, there is a high risk to missing the mark. It’s all or none when it comes to meaningful use, therefore we are encouraging providers to take time to review the changes and make sure you are on track well before January 1st. Providers that wait may find it is too late!
Get Started before January 1st!
A great resource to review is this recently released overview document of what has changed in the program and what is REQUIRED in 2016:
Providers are also encouraged to keep supporting documentation at the beginning of the reporting period (January 1st) for yes/no attestation measures, for more information review the Supporting Documentation for Audit Tipsheet from CMS.
