EHR Stage 1 Meaningful Use
On October 7, 2015, CMS released a new Final Rule for the EHR Incentive Program. The rule makes the reporting requirements for meaningful use easier for 2015 through 2017. See Modified Stage 2.
The information below reflects old stage 1 requirements.
EHR Stage 1 requires that eligible providers (EPs) demonstrate Meaningful Use (MU) for 18 objectives and report on 9 Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs):
Some requirements may fall outside the scope of a typical dental practice. In some cases, you may qualify for exclusions if you meet certain criteria. In others, you will still need to meet benchmarks, even if it requires extra data entry or work. Carefully review each measure before you begin. Identify the steps you need to accomplish, prepare a plan of action and document your compliancy along the way.
