Many physicians and hospitals have taken advantage of the financial incentives offered by Medicare and Medicaid to establish an electronic health record system (EHR). Just recently, Medicare began prepayment as well as post-payment audits to evaluate whether incentive recipients fulfill the standards for EHR money, including compliance with the “meaningful use” requirements. Failure to substantiate the standards will result in lost incentive money and even worse penalties, such as loss of Medicare certification. States have also initiated audits with respect to Medicaid EHR incentives. Providers who do not adopt EHR systems that meet MU standards also face reductions in payment rates.
At the same time, the next level of requirements to demonstrate meaningful use has recently been finalized. The Stage 2 requirements may require modifications to existing systems as well as training to implement new features. Incentive money will soon be tied to Stage 2 compliance so providers need to be familiar with the differences in the new standards in comparison to the Stage 1 requirements.
Join nationally recognized expert, Wayne J. Miller, Esq., for this 60-minute session to discuss the EHR incentive audit program in detail and what providers need to do to be prepared. He’ll also discuss the new Stage 2 standards, as well as the areas of critical focus to ensure that EHR systems will comply with the new requirements.
