9 Elements of MU Program Certified EHR In order to receive incentive payments the provider must use certified EHR technology (CEHRT) Certification is defined by the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) and is required in the HITECH Act The ONC has specified the capabilities required in a certified product Stages to certification

10 Elements of MU Program Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Every state runs its own program Medicare EHR Incentive Program Run by CMS Program runs from 2011 through 2021 Program runs from 2011 through 2016 Maximum incentive amount is $63,750 (across 6 years of program participation) In the first year, providers can receive an incentive payment for AIU of a certified EHR. Medicaid (Medi-Cal) does not have any penalties Maximum incentive amount is $44,000 (across 5 years of program participation) All years must demonstrate Meaningful Use to receive an incentive.

Following five payments require reporting and achieving meaningful use objectives and thresholds. Program runs 2011 through 2021 but must start no later than Participation does not need to be in consecutive years. EPs can skip years or not participate.

13 Medicaid MU Program Eligible Providers are non-hospital based Physicians (doctors of medicine or osteopathy and optometrists), Dentists, Certified nurse-midwives, Nurse practitioners, and Eligible for Program year 2013 but cannot yet register in the SLR. Physician assistants who are practicing in a Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) or Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) led by a physician assistant Hospital based- 90% or more of the provider s services are provided in an inpatient hospital or emergency room hospital setting (POS code 21 or 23).

22 Medicaid MU Program Important Notes The MU program was constructed around individual providers, not clinics/health centers. Providers can choose to reassign their incentive payment to the clinic/health center. Have to use a certified electronic health record. Dentists are eligible and can achieve MU. Eligibility is by an individual provider s Medicaid encounters or by group proxy from the prior calendar year. Reporting on the MU measures and objectives is by individual provider.

23 Reporting Meaningful Use Measures Stage 1

24 Achieving Meaningful Use Patients Time! Workflow Changes Reporting System Standardization

25 Reporting 50% Meaningful User In order for an EP to be considered a meaningful EHR user, at least 50% of the EP s patient encounters during the EHR reporting period must occur at a practice/location or practices/locations equipped with CEHRT A location is considered equipped with CEHRT if CEHRT is available at the start of the reporting period. EPs who do not conduct 50% of their patient encounters in any one practice/location would have to meet the 50% threshold through a combination of practices/locations equipped with CEHRT. EPs who do not meet this criterion are not eligible to participate in the EHR Incentive Program.

26 Reporting

27 Reporting 80% Rule At each location that an EP collects numerators and denominators for the percentage-based measures, the EP must include ALL patients in the denominator for relevant measures including patients records that are maintained in paper and/or in an uncertified EHR. Because more than 80% of all unique patients seen by the EP must have at least one entry or an indication that no problems are known for the patient recorded as structured data, it is reasonable to say that more than 80% of patients records must be maintained in CEHRT to meet Meaningful Use.

28 Reporting

29 Reporting Aggregating Data EPs who also practice at hospitals do not need to include encounters that occurred in inpatient settings and emergency departments of hospitals when collecting Meaningful Use data If CERHT is available at the start of the reporting period then the EP must include the data from those sites when capturing meaningful use data, no matter how many locations

30 Reporting Menu and CQM Measures Aggregating Data The attestation system only allows the selection of 5 menu objectives. If an EP practices in multiple locations that choose to implement the same menu objectives, the EP should combine the data for menu objectives for attestation. For menu objectives that are not shared across multiple locations, the EP should attest to the menu objectives implemented at the location where they have the greatest number of their patient encounters. The attestation system only allows the selection of 6 clinical quality measures. If an EP practices in multiple locations that choose to implement the same quality measures, the EP should combine the data for quality measures for attestation. For clinical quality measures that are not shared across multiple locations, the EP should attest to the clinical quality measures implemented at the location where they have the greatest number of their patient encounters.

31 Objectives & Measures Meaningful Use = MU Core Measures (2013 Changes) Menu Measures (of 10) Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs; 3 Core/Alt and 3 Additional) Meaningful Use

32 Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) 3 Core CQMS & 3 Alternate CQMS 38 CQMs Report on 3 Core CQMs OR select from alternate(s) when core measure does not apply to your practice or reports a zero in the denominator. Select 3 of 38 to report on. If zeros in the denominator, must have reports showing zeros in all non selected. Clinical quality measures do not have thresholds that you have to meet you simply have to report data on them.

33 Clinical Quality Measures EPs Core Set CQMs

34 Clinical Quality Measures EPs Alternate Core Set CQMs

35 Stage 1 Core Set: Must Do All Menu Set: Must Do 5 of 10 Use CPOE e-prescribing Drug-drug & drug allergy checks Medication list Allergy list Problem list Decision support Record demographics Smoking status Vital signs Clinical summaries to patient Electronic exchange Health info to patients Clinical quality measures Protect health information Change for 2013 and beyond reporting Change for 2014 and beyond reporting Incorporate clinical labs Medication reconciliation Implement drug-formulary checks Generate patient list Patient electronic access Send reminder Patient-specific education Clinical summaries to provider Submit electronic data to immunization registry* Submit electronic syndromic surveillance data* *At least 1 public health objective must be selected.

36 Stage 1 Objective: Core 1 Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) *Takes effect in 2013 What it means Old Measure Denominator: Number of unique patient with at least one medication in their medication list New Measure Added a 2 ND denominator option: # of medication orders created during EHR reporting Period. You can now choose which denominator value to use. At least 30% of your patients that have a medication listed OR 30% of your medication orders created - during the EHR period have to be entered using the EHR s CPOE module.

37 Stage 1 Objective: Core 3 E-Prescribing *Takes effect in 2013 Old Measure One Exclusion = Any EP who writes fewer than 100 prescriptions during the EHR EHR reporting period would be excluded from this requirement. New Measure Two Exclusions = EP writes fewer than 100 prescriptions during the EHR reporting period OR EP does not work within a 10 mile radius of a pharmacy that accepts electronic prescriptions What it means You may now be excluded from this measure if you meet either one of the two exclusions.

38 Stage 1 Objective: Core 8 Record Vital Signs *Optional in 2013, required in 2014 Old Measure Age Limits = Record blood pressure & height and weight for ages 2 and older Exclusions: All three elements not relevant to scope of practice If the EP sees no patients 2 years old or older New Measure Age Limits = Record BP for ages 3 and older; no age limit for height/weight Exclusions: All three elements not relevant to scope of practice BP can be excluded if only H/W are relevant H/W can be excluded if only BP is relevant EP sees no patients 3 years or older What it means Separated BP from H/W in exclusion options. Raised BP age from 2 to 3 years to align with pediatric standards. Must record height and weight for ALL patients. Raised maximum age of patients exclusion from 2 to 3 years old.

39 Stage 1 Objective: Core 14 Exchanges Key Clinical Information Among Providers *Takes effect in 2013 Old Measure One test of electronic transmission of key clinical information. New Measure This requirement is REMOVED effective What it means You are no longer required to meet this measure.
