Meaningful use

Physicians and health care providers who’ve been busy implementing certified electronic health record (EHR) systems this year soon can focus their sights on the fun part: collecting their reimbursement from the federal government for demonstrating meaningful use of those systems. Registration for the EHR Incentive Program opens in less than two weeks. On Jan. 3, a link to registration will be available on the program’s registration and attestation Web page.

As HealthIT Pulse mentioned in November, providers will be able to track their EHR incentive payment status via the Web using an online service implemented by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Providers are encouraged to visit the CMS’ EHR Incentive Program website early, to ensure they have everything they need to register for the program.

The CMS warns that not all states will be ready to open registration for their Medicaid EHR incentive programs on Jan. 3. As of November, some states still were struggling to implement their Medicaid health IT plans, which need to be approved by CMS before they can be implemented.
