2 Meaningful Use: Today s Topics Meaningful Use in a Nutshell EHR Incentive Programs Meaningful Use Stage 1 Requirements Eligibility Defined Incentive Registration Overview Incentive Attestation Overview IMS Meaningful Use Report Overview MU Requirements: Core and Menu Additional Resources
3 Meaningful Use in a Nutshell Introduced as part of American Reinvestment and Recovery Act 2009 Focus to improve health care through use of health information technology Three main EHR components Use in a meaningful manner (ex: e-prescribing) Use for electronic exchange of health information to improve quality of health care Use to submit clinical quality and other measures
4 Meaningful Use in a Nutshell Managed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Five year program Stage 1 sets the baseline for electronic data capture and information sharing (2011 and 2012). Stage 2 (2013) and Stage 3 ( ) will continue to expand on this baseline and be developed through future rule making.
5 EHR Incentive Programs Medicare Provides incentive payments to eligible professionals (EP), eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAH) that demonstrate meaningful use (MU) of certified EHR technology. Participation can begin as early as 2011 EP can receive up to $44k over 5 years; additional incentives for Health Professional Shortage Areas Maximize benefits; begin in 2011 After 2015, adjusted reimbursements if not successfully demonstrating MU
6 EHR Incentive Programs Medicaid Provides incentive payments to EPs, eligible hospitals, and CAHs as they adopt, implement, upgrade, or demonstrate MU of certified EHR technology in their first year of participation and demonstrate MU for up to five remaining participation years. Voluntarily offered by individual states and territories and may begin as early as 2011, depending on the state. EP can receive up to $63,750 over the six years that they choose to participate in the program. There are no payment adjustments under the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
7 EHR Incentive Programs Terms Adopted - Acquired and installed certified EHR technology. (For example, can show evidence of installation.) Implemented: Began using certified EHR technology. (For example, provide staff training or data entry of patient demographic information into EHR.) Upgraded: Expanded existing technology to meet certification requirements. (For example, upgrade to certified EHR technology or add new functionality to meet the definition of certified EHR technology.)
8 Eligibility Defined Eligibility Requirements for Professionals Incentive payments for EPs are based on individual practitioners. If part of a practice, each EP may qualify for an incentive payment if each eligible professional successfully demonstrates meaningful use of certified EHR technology. Each EP is only eligible for one incentive payment per year, regardless of how many practices or locations at which he or she provide services. Hospital-based eligible professionals are not eligible for incentive payments. An eligible professional is considered hospital-based if 90% or more of his or her services are performed in a hospital inpatient (Place Of Service code 21) or emergency room (Place Of Service code 23) setting.
9 Eligibility Defined - Medicare In addition to the eligibility requirements above, Medicare eligible professionals must have Medicare Part B allowed charges and must be enrolled in an approved status for Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS). EPs under the Medicare EHR Incentive Program include: Doctor of medicine or osteopathy Doctor of dental surgery or dental medicine Doctor of podiatry Doctor of optometry Chiropractor
10 Eligibility Defined - Medicaid In addition to the eligibility requirements above, to qualify for an incentive payment under the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, an eligible professional must meet one of the following criteria: Have a minimum 30% Medicaid patient volume* Have a minimum 20% Medicaid patient volume, and is a pediatrician* Practice predominantly in a Federally Qualified Health Center or Rural Health Center and have a minimum 30% patient volume attributable to needy individuals EPs under the Medicare EHR Incentive Program include: Doctor of medicine or osteopathy Doctor of dental surgery or dental medicine Doctor of podiatry Doctor of optometry Chiropractor * Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) patients do not count toward the Medicaid patient volume criteria.
11 Eligibility Defined Both??? What if an EP can qualify for Medicare and Medicaid? Professionals eligible for both the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs must choose which incentive program they wish to participate in when they register. Before 2015, an eligible professional may switch programs only once after the first incentive payment is initiated. Most eligible professionals will maximize their incentive payments by participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
12 MU Stage 1 Requirements In 2011 and/or 2012, EP must meet 20 of 25 MU objectives 15 Core Objectives EP must meet ALL of these to qualify 10 Menu Objectives EP must choose 5 from this list to qualify EP is also required to report discipline specific clinical quality measures (CQM).

For more information on CQM, visit:
13 Incentive Registration Overview Medicare registration opened January 3, 2011, so EPs may register at any time Medicaid registration varies by state and open date can be found: EP must either register personally or designate a third party to register on their behalf* If a third party will be registering for one or more EP, they must first create an account at the Identity & Access Management System (I&A) site * NOTE: Medicaid third-party registration availability may vary at the state level
14 Incentive Registration Overview Steps to Registration 1. Gather required information ahead of time a) NPI Number b) NPPES Number (also known as PECOS number) c) Payee Tax ID Number (if benefits to be reassigned) d) Payee NPI (if benefits to be reassigned) 2. Decide which program to register for Medicare Review the Medicare EP Registration User Guide Medicaid Review the Medicaid EP Registration User Guide 3.

15 Incentive Attestation Overview Medicare attestation opened April 18, 2011 Medicaid attestation varies by state and information can be found: EP must either attest personally or designate a third party to register on their behalf* If a third party will be attesting for one or more EP, they must first create an account at the Identity & Access Management System (I&A) site * NOTE: Medicaid third-party attestation may vary at the state level
16 Incentive Attestation Overview Medicare Requirements for Incentive Payment EP must be registered for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program Must meet Meaningful User criteria using certified EHR technology On the CMS Registration and Attestation System, EP must successfully attest to meeting meaningful use criteria using EHR technology Medicaid Requirements for Incentive Payment EP will follow a similar process to the above, using their state s specific Attestation System
17 Incentive Attestation Overview When to Attest Medicare In the first year, must have met MU criteria for one consecutive 90-day reporting period For all subsequent years, attestation must be met for the entire calendar year IMPORTANT NOTE: If your initial attestation fails in the first year, you may select a different 90-day that may partially overlap a previously reported 90-day period and attest again. (Tip: Plan to attest initially no later than September 15, 2011 to allow 2 weeks to make EHR or clinic process adjustments if needed and still have a full 90-day period for qualification in case overlap is not possible.) Medicaid In the first year, must attest to adopting, implementing or upgrading EHR Must check at the state level to find out when participation may begin
18 Incentive Attestation Overview Steps to Attestation 1. If not yet registered, register for the EHR Incentive Program 2. Thoroughly review the CMS Attestation User Guide 3. Verify that all of the necessary measures to demonstrate MU and qualify for an EHR incentive payment have been met with the CMS MU Attestation Calculator 4. Following CMS Attestation User Guide instructions, EP or designated third-party representative shall complete attestation
19 Incentive Attestation Overview General Notes Core and Menu Requirements in the CMS Attestation User Guide might not appear in the same order as shown in the IMS Meaningful Use Report. Be mindful of this!! The attestation process may take up to several hours to complete, but does not have to be completed in one sitting. Your work will save as you go and you can return to finish later Medicare incentive payments will be made 4 to 6 weeks after an EP meets requirements and successfully attests Medicaid incentive payments are required to be issued with 45 days of provider successfully attesting to adopting, implementing or upgrading EHR technology in their first year
