Thursday, November 1, 2012
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced the clinical quality measures for the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program. Starting in 2014, all providers will be required to report the new clinical quality measures regardless of whether they are participating in Stage 1 or Stage 2 of the EHR incentive program. Successful participation will require reporting of 9 of the 64 clinical quality measures. Providers can select which measures to report, though CMS offers a list of recommended but not required measures. To review the clinical quality measures and 2014 program requirements, please go to CMS website on EHR Incentive Programs.
