4 What is Meaningful Use? The federal government established the Meaningful Use program to improve the quality of patient care through increased use of Electronic Health Records across the country. The program provides Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments to hospitals and eligible professionals (EPs) when they demonstrate "meaningful use" of a certified Electronic Health Record. Along with the requirements from other external regulatory and accrediting bodies, the goals of the Meaningful Use program are in alignment and will help you: Improve Quality, Safety, Efficiency Engage Patients and Families Improve Care Coordination Improve Population and Public Health Ensure Privacy and Security Protections Meaningful Use of an electronic health record (EHR) offers immediate, tangible MU Patient Benefits (Table 1), such as requiring ready access to personal health information, medication reconciliation completed at each transition of care, use of alerts to potential drug-drug or drug-allergy interactions, and electronic prescribing. For physicians, meaningful use will ultimately ensure the ability to exchange health information with other providers, streamlining collaboration for coordinated patient care. Quality reporting allows providers to compare quality measures against national standards to identify areas where improvements may be needed. Meaningful Use quality reporting requirements are the first step in shifting quality reporting away from abstracted, retrospective reports towards real-time quality monitoring through the use of decision support tools, and utilizing specified terminology standards to improve comparability, reliability, and reusability of data.

5 Table 1: Patient Benefits Meaningful Use helps to define a shift in viewing the health record from not only a place to document care (which it is), but also a repository for knowledge, which can be used to transform and improve the delivery of care. The stated goals of the Meaningful Use program have benefits for patients (see examples below). Meaningful Use Goals Model of Care Elements Benefits to Patients and Communities Engage patients and their families Respect MU requires that patients have ready access to their health information, such as access to electronic copies of their health records upon request, and summary of care documents within specified time frames. Patients must also be provided ready access to their care team, through the availability and use of secure electronic messaging. Improve quality, safety, efficiency Quality Providers must maintain an active medication list and a medication allergy list within the electronic record. This allows for alerts with drug-drug interactions and drug-allergy interactions, thereby helping improve patient safety. In addition, providers are required to perform medication reconciliation at each transition of care. Ultimately, meaningful use of electronic health records will increase the use of Meaningful Use: Medicare and Medicaid Updated: June 27, 2014 Page 2

6 real-time decision-support tools to avoid errors and recommend treatment. Improve quality, safety, efficiency Quality Requirement for electronic prescribing, thereby reducing errors due to illegible handwritten prescriptions. Improve care coordination Improve quality, safety, efficiency Improve quality Improve population and public health Improve population and public health Teamwork Efficiency Quality Teamwork Quality Exchange health information with another provider. As health information exchange (HIE) technology becomes more sophisticated, this will help improve care coordination. Better sharing of information between providers will help reduce duplication of services, thereby reducing health care costs, and will facilitate care coordination and treatment. Quality metrics must be reported out of the certified record, with specified terminology requirements. This will ultimately allow better comparability of data, and improve real-time quality monitoring versus retrospective quality reporting Report data to state or other public health agencies, such as immunization or syndromic surveillance data. Disease reporting to state or other agencies will help monitor and improve public health and will eventually offer real-time surveillance of public health Meaningful Use: Medicare and Medicaid Updated: June 27, 2014 Page 3

7 issues and disease outbreaks. Improve quality, safety, efficiency Innovation Greater adoption of electronic health technology will help pressure IT vendors to develop and improve IT solutions that are integrated with clinical care processes. Improve population and public health Efficiency Demonstration of Meaningful Use provides terminology specifications, thereby improving comparability, reliability and reusability of data. Ensure privacy, security protections Respect MU specifies electronic health information protection. What is an EP? Providers report to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) through Eligible Hospitals (EH) and Eligible Professionals (EP). Each EH reports data as a single entity, but each EP reports individually. EPs in the Medicare program are doctors (of medicine, osteopathy, oral surgery, dental medicine, optometry, podiatry or chiropractors) who bill the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule for patient services, and perform their services in an outpatient setting. EPs in the Medicaid program include the following outpatient providers*: o Physicians (primarily doctors of medicine and doctors of osteopathy) o Nurse practitioners o Certified nurse-midwives o Dentists Meaningful Use: Medicare and Medicaid Updated: June 27, 2014 Page 4

8 o Physician assistants who furnish services in a Federally qualified Health Center or Rural Health Clinic that is led by a physician assistant. *In certain states, optometrists are eligible for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. For an optometrist to be eligible, the state Medicaid program must cover adult optometrist services as physician services in the Medicaid State Plan. Please check with your state Medicaid agency for more information. How are Registration and Attestation Being Handled? As part of the process of meeting the CMS Meaningful Use incentive program that was initiated in 2009, eligible providers (EPs) and hospital representatives must complete a process of registering and attesting for the program. So, what is registration and attestation? Registration: In order to participate in the Medicare Electronic Health Record Incentive Program (also known as Meaningful Use program), an EP must first enroll in the program using the physician s National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) user identification and password. Attestation: After a provider has met the Program requirements, the data must be submitted to CMS. Meaningful Use reports can be generated from certified Electronic Health Records. What are the Meaningful Use Requirements? There will be at least 3 stages of Meaningful Use. Each stage has different requirements. Each EH and EP will report data for 2 years within each stage. There are several core measures that must be met, along with a few selection of measures selected from a menu. Some of the measures have exclusions, if an EH or EP meets that exclusion, they do not need to report that measure.
