4 INTRODUCTION

5 Disclaimer The target audience of this presentation is Eligible Providers, but some references will be made related to Eligible Hospitals. This webinar is based on official guidance provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), experiences from ILHITREC, and other Regional Extension Centers. This presentation was prepared as a tool to assist providers enrolled in the EHR Incentive Program administered by CMS. The ultimate responsibility for compliance, submission and response to any remittance from CMS rests with the provider. Medicare policy changes frequently. It is highly recommended that providers and their designee review rules and regulations frequently. The focus of this presentation is an introduction to the Modified Rule for The contents apply to both the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs through CMS and the ONC.

6 Modified Final Rule The Modification Rule responds to provider concerns about software implementation and information exchange readiness: Restructures Stage 1 and Stage 2 Objective measures to align with Stage 3: EP: 10 Objectives, including 1 consolidated public health objective EH/CAH: 9 Objectives, including 1 consolidated public health objective Streamlines program by removing redundant, duplicative and topped out measures Modifies patient action measures in Stage 2 objectives related to patient engagement that requires patient action Starting in 2015, aligns reporting period with the calendar year for all providers Changes EHR reporting period in 2015 to 90-day period to accommodate modifications All providers attest to Modified Stage 2 Objectives unless this is the first year of participation CQM reporting for all remains as previously finalized
