14 Protect Patient Health Information OBJECTIVE 1: Protect electronic health information created or maintained by the CEHRT through the implementation of appropriate technical capabilities. MEASURE: Conduct or review a security risk analysis in accordance with the requirements in 45 CFR (a)(1), including addressing the security (to include encryption) of ephi created or maintained by CEHRT in accordance with requirements and implement security updates as necessary and correct identified security deficiencies as part of the risk management process. Rule references Office of Civil Rights (OCR) guidance on conducting security risk analysis in accordance with HIPAA Security Rule (dated July 14, 2010) ( ) and the ONC/OCR Security Risk Assessment (SRA) Tool: (
15 Protect Patient Health Information More clarification on timing and content of security reviews: Review needs to incorporate anticipated changes in the CEHRT system: We note that a security risk analysis is not a discrete item in time, but a comprehensive analysis covering the full period of time for which it is applicable..the analysis and review are not merely episodic but should cover a span of the entire year, including a review planning for future system changes within the year or a review of prior system changes within the year. If attestation period is 90 days, the period of time for security review is clarified: If the EHR reporting period is 90 days, it must be completed in the same calendar year. This may occur either before or during the EHR reporting period; or, it occurs after the EHR reporting period, it must occur before the provider attests or before the end of the calendar year, whichever date comes first. Security risk analysis tool ( is applicable to all organizations regardless of size.
16 EP Electronic Prescribing (erx) EP OBJECTIVE 2: Generate and transmit permissible prescriptions electronically (erx). EP MEASURE: > 60% of all permissible prescriptions are: Queried for drug formulary Transmitted electronically EP EXCLUSION: EP who writes < 100 prescriptions during the reporting period.
17 EH Electronic Prescribing (erx) EH OBJECTIVE 2: Hospital discharge medications for permissible prescriptions (erx) are queried for drug formulary and transmitted electronically. EH MEASURE: > 25% of all hospital discharge medication orders for permissible prescriptions (for new and changed prescriptions) are: Queried for a drug formulary Transmitted electronically EH EXCLUSION: No internal pharmacy that accepts erx and no pharmacy within 10 miles accepts erx.
18 Issues Raised about Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) Role of controlled substances E-prescribing unclear in Stage 3 The term controlled substances used in the proposed rule is replaced by the term permissible prescriptions. There is a significant discussion on the use of E-prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) in the rule. The status changes from permitted to include them in to being required to include them if it is permissible under state law (such as Ohio): We are modifying the denominator (for erx) to remove this language (i.e., controlled substances). Again, we note this is only a change in wording and does not change the substance of our current policy that providers have the option, but are not required, to include prescriptions for controlled substances in the measure for Stage 3. For EHR Incentive Programs in , we note that inclusion of controlled substances under permissible prescriptions is optional For Stage 3, while we intended to maintain this option, based on public comments and the progress of states toward acceptance of EPCS we are modifying this policy that the inclusion of controlled substances should be required where it is feasible to electronically prescribe the drug and where allowable by law.
19 Issues Raised about Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) cont Role of controlled substances e-prescribing unclear in Stage 3 (cont): Therefore, we are changing the measure for this objective to remove the language regarding controlled substances. Instead, we are adopting that under permissible prescriptions for the Stage 3 objective providers must may include electronic prescriptions of controlled substances in the measure where creation of an electronic prescription for the medication is feasible using CEHRT and where allowed by law for the duration of the EHR reporting period. There are no corresponding certification criteria for controlled substances e-prescribing in the CMS 2015 Ed. rule. For more information on requirements for EPCS and available pharmacies, see:
20 Ohio Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS)
21 Clinical Decision Support OBJECTIVE 3: Implement clinical decision support (CDS) interventions focused on improving performance on high-priority health conditions. MEASURE 1: Implement 5 clinical decision support interventions related to 4 or more CQMs at a relevant point in patient care for the entire EHR reporting period. Absent 4 CQMS, CDS must be related to high-priority health conditions. MEASURE 2: Drug/Drug and Drug/Allergy interaction checking functionality enabled. EP EXCLUSION FOR DRUG/DRUG & DRUG/ALLERGY: EP who writes < 100 medication orders during the reporting period.
22 Computerized Provider Order Entry OBJECTIVE 4: Use computerized provider order entry for medication, laboratory, and radiology orders directly entered by any licensed healthcare professional that can enter orders per state, local & professional guidelines. MEASURE 1: > 60% of medication orders created by EP or by authorized providers of the EH s inpatient or emergency department (POS 21 or 23) during the EHR reporting period are recorded using CPOE. MEASURE 2: > 60% of laboratory orders created by EP or authorized providers of hospital s inpatient or ED recorded using CPOE. MEASURE 3: > 60% of diagnostic imaging orders created by EP or authorized providers of hospital s inpatient or ED are recorded using CPOE. EP EXCLUSION: EP who writes < 100 med orders, < 100 lab orders or < 100 diagnostic imaging orders during the reporting period is excluded from that particular measure.
23 CPOE Notes on Who May Enter CMS defers to the provider s discretion to determine the appropriateness of the credentialing to ensure that any staff entering orders have the clinical training and knowledge required to enter orders for CPOE. We reiterate that CMS does not require any specific or general certification and note that credentialing may take many forms including, but not limited to, the appropriate degree from a health training and education program from which the medical staff matriculated. Determination of individuals who should be permitted to do CPOE based on: Organizational workflows Appropriate credentialing of the staff member by an organization other than the employing organization Analysis of duties performed by the staff member Compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws and professional guidelines
24 CPOE Expanded for Radiology Orders Radiology CPOE now expanded to diagnostic imaging to include: Ultrasounds CT-scans MRIs and all other diagnostic imaging
25 Patient Electronic Access OBJECTIVE 5: Provide patients (or patient-authorized representative) with timely electronic access to their health information and patient-specific education. MEASURE 1 (Access): > 80% of unique patients seen by EP or discharged from the EH: Provided timely access to view, download, and transmit health information; and Provider ensures the patient s PHI is available to access using any application of their choice configured to meet the technical specs of the API in the provider s CEHRT MEASURE 2 (Patient Education): For >35% of unique patients seen by EP or discharged from the EH: EP or EH must use clinically relevant information from CEHRT to identify patientspecific educational resources and provide electronic access to those materials >35% of unique patients seen by EP or discharged from EH EXCLUSIONS: EP: EP has no office visits during the reporting period EP/EH: EP conducts 50% or more of patient encounter in county with inadequate broadband connectivity or EH is located in such a county, as determined by FCC
26 Patient Electronic Access Timely Access Measure does not specify the timeline for posting; the threshold appears in the language of the rule. The rule states that CMS is expanding the timeline for posting to the portal that was required under the proposed rule (24 hours). Now the timeline for posting is: We (CMS) are instead finalizing that information must be included for access within 48 hours for EPs and are retaining the current 36 hours for eligible hospitals and CAHs.
27 Patient Electronic Access Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) API is set of programming protocols Enables access to data through 3rd party application More flexible than portal; can combine data from numerous sources If API provides View, Download and Transmit functionality, then portal not needed separately
28 API Responsibility Application: 3 rd Party s responsibility API: Provider s responsibility
29 API Responsibility Provide list of compatible applications as provided by EHR vendor Provide necessary connection information
30 Patient Electronic Access Patient Portal API* = Electronic Access: EPs: Within 48 hours of availability EHs: Within 36 hours of availability after discharge *Application Programming Interfaces
31 Coordination of Care through Patient Engagement OBJECTIVE 6: Use CEHRT to engage with patients or their authorized representative about the patient s care. Must meet threshold for 2 out of 3 measures and attest to all 3 measures. MEASURE 1: >10% of unique patients or authorized representative either: View, download or transmit health info, OR Use patient-selected API configured to API in provider s CEHRT to access patient info, OR A combination of both view, download or transmit and API 2017 Threshold for Measure 1: >5% of unique patients Measure 2: >25% of unique patients seen by EP or discharged by EH was sent a secure message through CEHRT or a secure message from patient or representative was responded to using a secure message Threshold for Measure 2: >5% of unique patients MEASURE 3: For >5% of unique patients, either patient-generated health data or data from a non-clinical setting is incorporated into the EHR. EXCLUSIONS: EP: EP has no office visits during the reporting period EP/EH: EP conducts 50% or more of patient encounter in county with inadequate broadband, as determined by FCC, or hospital is located in such a county.
32 Coordination of Care through Patient Engagement Measure 1: View/Download/Transmit/API Although EP and EH are not required to use the API as part of the threshold for Patient Engagement Measure 1, under Patient Electronic Access (Objective 5), need to have the functionality enabled and information pushing to the API as well as to the portal (if portal is also being used to meet the VDT functionality). In 2018 it becomes 10% To meet Stage 3 in 2017, the measure is >5% of patients view/download/transmit or use API.
33 Coordination of Care through Patient Engagement Measure 2: Secure Messaging Moves from patient generated to provider generated . Can count patient generated s but only when provider responds. Not required to respond to all s, but can only count if EP/EH does respond. Includes s to other care team members when the patient is engaged in the message and has the ability to be an active participant in the conversation. In 2018 this becomes 25% To meet Stage 3 in 2017, the measure is >5% of patients sent an .
34 Coordination of Care through Patient Engagement Measure 3: Patient-Generated Health Data/Data from a Non-Clinical Setting A. Data Generated from a Non-Clinical Setting Definition: Data generated in a setting by a provider who is not an EP or EH and where provider does not have access to a shared CEHRT system. Examples of types of providers: Nutritionists, PTs, OTs, psychologists, home health care providers, behavioral health providers or patient. Types of data can include social service data, patient generated data, medical device data, home health monitoring data, and fitness monitoring data. Technology used to monitor chronic care is specifically mentioned.
35 Coordination of Care through Patient Engagement Measure 3: Patient-Generated Health Data/Data from a Non-Clinical Setting B. Patient-Generated Health Data (Subset of Non-Clinical Data) Definition: Patient self-monitoring of his/her health, either on own or under the direction of a provider. Can include information that patient provides remotely as opposed that gathered in the office or hospital setting (e.g., patient sends family health history or advanced directive via mail or ) Information must be incorporated into patient record to count, but does not have to be discrete data as long as it is attached to patient record in some manner (e.g., as attachment, a link, or a text reference). If it can be easily incorporated into an existing data field in CEHRT (e.g., demographic info, family history) provider may do so.
36 Health Information Exchange OBJECTIVE 7: EP/EH must (1) provide a summary of care record when transitioning or referring the patient to another setting of care; (2) retrieve a summary of care record upon the first patient encounter with a new patient; and (3) incorporate summary of care information from other providers into their EHR. Must meet threshold for 2 out of 3 measures and attest to all 3 measures.
37 Health Information Exchange Common Clinical Data Set (CCDS) All information pertaining to Health Information Exchange is now termed part of the Common Clinical Data Set rather than Common MU Data Set. Required elements for CCDS are: Demographics Current problem list (can include elements of historical problem list if desired; not required) Current medication list Current medication allergy list All other fields may be left blank if information not available and still meet the summary of care requirements. Addition of new data items including unique device identifier (UDI) for implantable devices. Inclusion of data for CCDS is determined by clinical relevancy, as decided by the provider in conjunction with IT vendor.
38 Health Information Exchange Must Meet 2 Out of 3 50% Data Out by: 1) DIRECT 2) Community Health Record Data In by: 1) Receipt of CCD via DIRECT 2) Query of Community Health Record Must incorporate pertinent results into patient s record 40% Exclusion: < 100 referrals or transitions 80% Clinical Information Reconciliation for: 1) Meds 2) Med Allergies 3) Problems
39 Health Information Exchange Measure 1 Electronic Exchange of Summary of Care OBJECTIVE 7: EP/EH must (1) provide a summary of care record when transitioning or referring the patient to another setting of care; (2) retrieve a summary of care record upon the first patient encounter with a new patient; and (3) incorporate summary of care information from other providers into their EHR. Must meet threshold for 2 out of 3 measures and attest to all 3 measures. MEASURE 1: >50% of transitions of care and referrals, the provider that transitions or refers patient to another setting of care: (1) Creates a summary of care record using CEHRT; AND (2) Electronically exchanges the summary of care record. MEASURE 1 EXCLUSIONS: EP: EP who has < 100 transitions of care or referrals during the reporting period EP/EH: EP conducts 50% or more of patient encounter in county with inadequate broadband, as determined by FCC, or hospital is located in such a county.
40 Health Information Exchange Measure 1 Electronic Exchange of Summary of Care Originally limited to EPs or EHs that (1) did not share a tax ID # and (2) did not share access to CEHRT. Now electronic exchange has been broadened to include any providers that have, at a minimum, different billing identities, e.g., different NPIs or CCN #s. Some examples that would be included under this policy would be one EP sending to another EP in the same group practice, an eligible hospital sending to an EP in an ambulatory setting which shares the hospital s EHR, or a provider sending to a non-ep practitioner who may have shared access to the EHR but whose patient encounters are not included under the referring EPs supervision. Examples that would be excluded are: EP referring patient to another setting but the same EP is the provider Referral from one clinical setting to another within the same hospital EP sending to a non-ep who is under the direct supervision of the EP Can tailor the CCDS to send only information deemed clinically relevant must maintain all data in CEHRT in case requested in the future.
41 Health Information Exchange Measure 2 Incorporation of Summary of Care in Patient Record OBJECTIVE 7: EP/EH must (1) provide a summary of care record when transitioning or referring the patient to another setting of care; (2) retrieve a summary of care record upon the first patient encounter with a new patient; and (3) incorporate summary of care information from other providers into their EHR. Must meet threshold for 2 out of 3 measures and attest to all 3 measures. MEASURE 2: For >40% of transitions or referrals received & provider has never before encountered patient, incorporates into EHR an electronic summary of care document from another source. If provider did not receive a CCDA for the patient then queries at least one external source via HIE functionality. MEASURE 2 EXCLUSION: EP/EH total transitions received in which provider has never before encountered patient is < 100 during reporting period.
42 Health Information Exchange Measure 2 Incorporation of Summary of Care in Patient Record Patient must be a new patient or one that has transitioned back into the practice. No proposed limit on when a patient is considered a new patient. Can also query the Community Health Record (CHR) via the HIE for patient summary of care. If no record found, then do not count in denominator. Summary of care document must be consumed as discrete data elements by the CEHRT system to count, not just viewed.
43 Health Information Exchange Measure 3 Clinical Information Reconciliation OBJECTIVE 7: EP/EH must (1) provide a summary of care record when transitioning or referring the patient to another setting of care; (2) retrieve a summary of care record upon the first patient encounter with a new patient; and (3) incorporate summary of care information from other providers into their EHR. Must meet threshold for 2 out of 3 measures and attest to all 3 measures. MEASURE 3: >80% of transitions or referrals received & provider has never before encountered patient the provider performs a clinical information reconciliation for the following 3 clinical information sets: (1) Medication review of patient s medication including name, dosage, frequency, and route of each medication. (2) Medication allergy review of patient s known allergic medications. (3) Current problem list review of the patient s current & active diagnoses. MEASURE 3 EXCLUSION: EP/EH total transitions received in which provider has never before encountered patient is < 100 during reporting period.
44 Health Information Exchange Measure 3 Clinical Information Reconciliation Clinical Information Reconciliation is defined as the process of creating the most accurate patient-specific information in one or more categories. Must include reconciliation for the following 3 areas: 1. Medication 2. Medication allergy 3. Current problem list
45 Health Information Exchange Information can be limited in C-CDA to information that is clinically relevant, specifically: Lab results that best represent the patient status upon admission, any abnormal results, and patient status upon discharge. Provider s CEHRT must have ability to send all lab results If receiving provider or patient requests it, all lab results must be sent.
46 Public Health/Clinical Data Registry Reporting OBJECTIVE 8: EP/EH is in active engagement with a public health agency or clinical data registry to submit electronic public health data in a meaningful way using certified EHR technology, except where prohibited and in accordance with applicable law and practice.
47 Public Health/Clinical Data Registry Reporting Proposed Single Objective: The EP, EH or CAH is in active engagement with a Public Health Agency (PHA) or Clinical Data Registry (CDR) to submit electronic public health data in a meaningful way using certified EHR technology, except where prohibited, and in accordance with applicable law and practice. Active Engagement: Includes 3 options (1) Completed Registration of Intent to Submit Data; (2) Testing and Validation; or (3) Production. Clinical data registries must support registration of intent process. Proposed Centralized Repository: CMS planning a repository of national, state and local PHA and CDR readiness. Public health agencies and clinical data registries MUST give 6 month s notice as to whether they will be ready to accept data at the beginning of the reporting period.
48 Public Health Measures Options Eligible Provider(EP): Must select 2 public health/registry options Eligible Hospital(EH/CAH): Must select 4public health/registry options # Measure Description Maximum Time Measure counts for EP Maximum Time Measure counts for EH 1 Immunization Registry Reporting Syndromic Surveillance Reporting 1 (N/A except for urgent care settings) 3 Case Reporting Public Health Registry Reporting Includes CDC or Cancer Registry (EP Only) Clinical Data Registry Reporting Electronic Lab Reporting (Infectious Disease) N/A 1

50 Public Health Registration of Intent Providers that intend to meet MU public health objectives/measures must register their intent to do so with ODH. Registration of intent must occur by the 60th day of the provider s EHR reporting period at: Providers should register as entities, not individually unless multiple data feeds are necessary. ODH does not require EPs/EHs to re-register intent if they have registered in a prior reporting period.
51 Clinical Quality Reporting (EPs) CQM reporting is finalized for 2015 and is the same as 2014 reporting: EPs need to report 9 CQMs across 3 domains Type of Reporting: In 2015, can attest to a 90 day reporting period for CQMs In 2016, can attest or submit ecqms for a 1 year reporting period In 2017, can either attest or submit ecqms but must cover 1 full year of CQMs even if attesting for Stage 3 for 90 days In 2018, must submit ecqms
