5 Lindsey Wiley, MHA Lindsey works with healthcare providers and hospitals to advance the use of electronic health records (EHR) to improve patient care and health outcomes. She consults with physician practices and hospitals to successfully implement and meaningfully use EHRs, including assistance associated with vendor products, hardware, software and system configuration and troubleshooting, staffing considerations, workflow analysis, EHR utilization, security and privacy, and quality data reporting from EHR systems.

10 Medicare EHR Incentive Program Medicare EHR Incentive Program Run by CMS Maximum incentive amount is $44,000 Payments over 5 consecutive years Payment adjustments will begin in 2015 for providers who are eligible but decide not to participate Providers must demonstrate meaningful use every year to receive incentive payments.

11 Medicare Incentive Table MEDICARE Medicare Profession Qualifies for first payment in Year: $ 18, $ 12,000 $ 18, $ 8,000 $ 12,000 $ 15, $ 4,000 $ 8,000 $ 12,000 $ 12, $ 2,000 $ 4,000 $ 8,000 $ 8,000 $ $ - $ 2,000 $ 4,000 $ 4,000 $ - $ - TOTAL: $ 44,000 $ 44,000 $ 39,000 $ 24,000 $ - $ - HPSA: $ 48,400 $ 48,400 $ 42,900 $ 26,400 $ - $ - The longer you wait the steeper and more difficult the climb. 11

14 Timelines Everyone gets 2 years of Stage 1 Calendar Year First Year: ANY 90 consecutive days Second Year: 365 consecutive days 2014: Regardless of stage everyone does 90 days, must select 1 of 4 quarters 14

15 Timelines Providers that are attesting to Meaningful Use for the first time in calendar year (CY) 2014, the following applies. To avoid the 2015 penalty, providers need to attest in the first 9 months of their respective fiscal year (FY) for EHs or CY 2014 for EPs. If providers wait until Q4 to attest, they will: Get penalized in 2015 for failing to attest in first 9 months. Still get a 2014 incentive because they did attest to MU for 90 days during CY Avoid the 2016 penalty because 2014 is the basis for 2016's penalty and they did MU in 2014, just not in time to avoid the 2015 penalty.

16 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) CMS rule to help providers make use of Certified EHR Technology Rule also proposes to extend Stage 2 of the EHR Incentive Programs through 2016 Provide eligible professionals (EP) and eligible hospitals (EH) more flexibility in how they use certified EHR technology to meet meaningful use Providers would be allowed to use the 2011 Edition CEHRT or a combination of 2011 and 2014 Edition CEHRT for the EHR reporting period in 2014 Beginning in 2015 all EP s and EH s would still be required to report using 2014 Edition CEHRT Includes provision that would extend Stage 2 through 2016 and begin Stage 3 in 2017

17 Proposed Changes to Meaningful Use Timeline

18 Proposed Changes to Meaningful Use Timeline

19 The comment period for the NPRM on Medicare and Medicaid Programs: Modifications, Revisions: Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record Incentive Programs for 2014: Health Information Technology is now OPEN

20 Payment Adjustments American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) mandates that payment adjustments should be applied to Medicare EP s and EH s who are not meaningful users of CEHRT under the Medicare EHR Program. Providers must participate in either the Medicare or Medicaid EHR Incentive program to avoid payment adjustments Payment adjustments will be applied beginning on October for hospitals and January 1, 2015 for Medicare

21 Payment Adjustments for Medicare EP s The payment adjustment is 1% per year and is cumulative for every year that an EP is not a meaningful user. Depending on the total number of Medicare EP s who are meaningful users after 2018, the max cumulative payment adjustment can reach as high as 5%. The following tables illustrate the potential application of payment adjustments to covered professional services for Medicare EP who is not a meaningful user beginning in 2014

22

23 Hardship Exception Eligible professionals may apply for hardship exceptions to avoid the payment adjustments previously described. Hardship exceptions will be granted only under specific circumstances and only if CMS determines that providers have demonstrated that those circumstances pose a significant barrier to their achieving meaningful use.

24 Hardship Exception Categories 1. Infrastructure: Eligible professionals must demonstrate that they are in an area without sufficient internet access or face insurmountable barriers to obtaining infrastructure (e.g., lack of broadband). 2. New Eligible Professionals: Newly practicing eligible professionals who would not have had time to become meaningful users can apply for a 2-year limited exception to payment adjustments. Thus eligible professionals who begin practice in calendar year 2015 would receive an exception to the penalties in 2015 and 2016, but would have to begin demonstrating meaningful use in calendar year 2016 to avoid payment adjustments in Unforeseen Circumstances: Examples may include a natural disaster or other unforeseeable barrier.

25 Hardship Exception Categories 4. Patient Interaction: Lack of face-to-face or telemedicine interaction with patient Lack of follow-up need with patients 5. Practice at Multiple Locations: Lack of control over availability of CEHRT for more than 50% of patient encounters EHR Vendor Issues: The eligible professional s EHR vendor was unable to obtain 2014 certification or the eligible professional was unable to implement meaningful use due to 2014 EHR certification delays.

26 Hardship Exception Applications are due by midnight EDT on July 1, Submitting the form doesn't guarantee a waiver from the payment penalties set to begin Jan.1, Eligible professionals who do not achieve Meaningful Use by Oct. 31, 2014 and who do not apply for the Hardship Exception will be subject to penalties beginning in 2015

50 Why Security & Privacy Risk Analysis? Required for Meaningful Use Primary tenet for HIPAA (1996) and HITECH (2009) Used to determine which safeguards and technologies will best protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of e-phi- Electronic Protected Health Information Risk analysis is the first step in an organization s Security Rule compliance efforts 50

Because patients trust you with their health information Your Organization, NOT your EHR vendor, is responsible for taking the steps necessary to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of health information in your EHR and comply with HIPAA Rules and CMS Meaningful Use requirements 51

52 Specifics for Meaningful Use Provider is responsible for obtaining a compliant risk analysis for each reporting period Results of the Risk Analysis must be kept as part of the Meaningful Use Attestation Provider is responsible for any identified deficiencies, inventory, as well as ongoing mitigation Have to address your findings (risks) with proper documentation 52
