Transcript

  • 1. Meaningful Use 2 Timeline Shift; What It Means For Your Practice?
  • 2. Yet another MU 2 pushback; but is there a reason to cheer? • MU2 has been extended through 2016. • This give Eligible Professionals (EPs) enough time to formulate a more solid Meaningful Use plan.
  • 3. Some Breathing Room… • Eligible professionals who attest in 2014 will get an extra year in 2016. • EHR vendors can have more time to revamp their systems and focus on the Achilles heel of most EHRs, interoperability.
  • 4. More time for MU3… • The deadline shift will offer medical practices some amount of space and flexibility. • More time would be there to prepare for Meaningful Use stage 3.
  • 5. Can the shift impact ICD 10 implementation? • The answer is unluckily YES. • “October 1st 2014 is a date set in stone according to senior health insurance specialist at CMS, Denescia Green.”
  • 6. Hopes dashed? • A bitter disappointment for physicians who were hoping for a delay in ICD 10. • One major advantage, is that medical practices can utilize and focus their resources, on ICD 10 alone.
  • 7. Have great staff on board? • With 2014 being a hectic year, not concentrating on hiring or training staff, can prove disastrous for practices! • Practices can rely on trained personnel and not pushbacks for meeting deadlines.
