  • 3. • The Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs provide financial incentives for the “meaningful use” of certified EHR technology to improve patient care.• To receive an EHR incentive payment, providers have to show that they are “meaningfully using” their EHRs by meeting thresholds for a number of objectives. 2
  • 4. • CMS has established the objectives for “meaningful use” that eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAHs) must meet in order to receive an incentive payment. 3
  • 5. • Use of certified EHR in a meaningful manner (e.g., e-prescribing).• Use of certified EHR technology for electronic exchange of health information to improve quality of health care.• Use of certified EHR technology to submit clinical quality measures (CQM) and other such measures selected by the Secretary. 4

  • 7. • Stage 1: Data Capture & Sharing - Electronic capture of health information in a structured format, Stage 1 begins in 2011.• Stage 2: Advanced Clinical Processes - Quality improvement at the point of care and electronic exchange of information, Stage 2 scheduled to begin in 2014.• Stage 3: Improved Outcomes - Improvements in quality, safety, and efficiency clinical decision support & patient self-management tools, Stage 3 is scheduled to begin in 2016. 6

  • 9. Flow Chart to Help Eligible Professionals (EP) Determine Eligibility for the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive ProgramsHow to Use this Flow Chart: A Medicaid eligible professional may also be eligible for the Medicare incentive and should follow the path of answering no to the questionof Medicaid patient volume to determine Medicare eligibility. An eligible professional who qualifies for both programs may only participate in one program. EligibleProfessionals eligible to receive EHR incentive payments under Medicare or Medicaid will maximize their payments by choosing the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. *Section 1903(t)(3)(F) of the Act defines needy individuals h as individuals meeting any of the following three criteria: (1) They are receiving medical assistance from Medicaid or  the  Ci ldren’s  Health  Insurance  Program  (CHIP); (2) they are furnished uncompensated care by the provider; or (3) they are furnished services at either no cost or reduced cost based on a sliding scale. 8
  • 10. • Meaningful use includes both a core set and a menu set of objectives that are specific to eligible professionals or eligible hospitals and CAHs.• For eligible professionals, there are a total of 25 meaningful use objectives. To qualify for an incentive payment, 20 of these 25 objectives must be met: ◦ 15 required core objectives. ◦ 5 objectives chosen from a list of 10 menu set objectives. 9
  • 11. • For eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals, there are a total of 24 meaningful use objectives. To qualify for an incentive payment, 19 of these 24 objectives must be met: ◦ 14 required core objectives. ◦ 5 objectives chosen from a list of 10 menu set objectives. 10
  • 12. • In addition to meeting the core and menu objectives, eligible professionals, eligible hospitals and CAHs are also required to report clinical quality measures. ◦ Eligible professionals must report on 6 total clinical quality measures: 3 required core measures (or 3 alternate core measures) and 3 additional measures (selected from a set of 38 clinical quality measures). ◦ Eligible hospitals and CAHs must report on all 15 of their clinical quality measures. 11

  • 15. • Eligible professionals can receive up to $44,000 over five years under the Medicare EHR Incentive Program.• Eligible professionals can receive up to $63,750 over the six years that they choose to participate in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. 14
  • 16. • CMS has delayed the onset of Stage 2 criteria. The earliest that the Stage 2 criteria will be effective is in fiscal year 2014 for eligible hospitals and CAHs or calendar year 2014 for EPs. 15
  • 17. • Note that providers who were early demonstrators of meaningful use in 2011 will meet three consecutive years of meaningful use under the Stage 1 criteria before advancing to the Stage 2 criteria in 2014.• All other providers would meet two years of meaningful use under the Stage 1 criteria before advancing to the Stage 2 criteria in their third year. 16
