EHR Stage 2 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 2 requirements.

EHR Stage 2 requires that eligible providers (EPs) demonstrate meaningful use for 20 objectives and report on 9 Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs):

Stage 2 MU requirements build on the requirements of Stage 1.  Some requirements may fall outside the scope of a typical dental practice.  In some cases, you may qualify for an exclusion if you meet criteria. In others, you must still meet benchmarks, even if it requires extra data entry or work.  Carefully review each measure before you begin the reporting period.  Identify the steps you need to accomplish, then prepare a plan of action and document your compliancy along the way.
