The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has released worksheets to help eligible hospitals and professionals in Modified Stage 2 of the Medicare Electronic Health Records Incentive Program log their meaningful use measures for calendar year 2016. CMS also issued additional guidance to help eligible hospitals in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program and Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program submit 2016 electronic clinical quality measures for the “device, order not done” field. Eligible hospitals and professionals must attest to meaningful use of EHRs in 2016 to avoid a payment adjustment in 2018. The 2016 attestation period for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program opened today and runs through Feb. 28.
