  • NPRM vs. Final RuleMeet all MU reporting objectives vs. Must meet “core set”/can defer 5 from optional “menu set”25 measures for EPs/23 for eligible hospitals vs. 25 measures for EPs/24 for eligible hospitalsMeasure thresholds range from 10% to 80% of patients or orders (most at higher range) vs. Measure thresholds range from 10% to 80% of patients or orders (most at lower to middle range)Denominators – To calculate the threshold, some measures required manual chart review vs. Denominators – No measures require manual chart review to calculate threshold (Speaker Note: Manual chart review including the counting of orders. For the final rule, the only counting that would be required would be to know the number of patients seen or admitted during the EHR reporting period.

    73. 73. Meaningful Use: Basic Overview of Final Rule<br /><ul><li>Stage 1 (2011 and 2012)
    74. 74. To meet certain objectives/measures, 80% of patients must have records in the certified EHR technology
    75. 75. EPs have to report on 20 of 25 MU objectives
    76. 76. Eligible hospitals have to report on 19 of 24 MU objectives
    77. 77. Reporting Period – 90 days for first year; one year subsequently</li></ul>19<br />
    78. 78. Meaningful Use: Core Set Objectives<br /><ul><li>EPs – 15 Core Objectives</li></ul>Computerized physician order entry (CPOE)<br />E-Prescribing (eRx)<br />Report ambulatory clinical quality measures to CMS/States<br />Implement one clinical decision support rule<br />Provide Patients with an electronic copy of their health information, upon request<br />Provide clinical summaries for patients for each office visit<br />Drug-drug and drug-allergy interaction checks<br />Record demographics<br />Maintain an up-to-date problem list of current and active diagnoses<br />Maintain active medication list<br />Maintain active medication allergy list<br />Record and chart changes in vital signs<br />Record smoking status for patients 13 years or older<br />Capability to exchange key clinical information among providers of care and patient-authorized entities electronically<br />Protect electronic health information <br />20<br />
    79. 79. Meaningful Use: Core Set Objectives<br /><ul><li>Eligible Hospitals – 14 Core Objectives</li></ul>CPOE<br />Drug-drug and drug-allergy interaction checks<br />Record demographics<br />Implement one clinical decision support rule<br />Maintain up-to-date problem list of current and active diagnoses<br />Maintain active medication list<br />Maintain active medication allergy list<br />Record and chart changes in vital signs<br />Record smoking status for patients 13 years or older<br />Report hospital clinical quality measures to CMS or States<br />Provide patients with an electronic copy of their health information, upon request<br />Provide patients with an electronic copy of their discharge instructions at time of discharge, upon request<br />Capability to exchange key clinical information among providers of care and patient-authorized entities electronically<br />Protect electronic health information<br />21<br />
    80. 80. Meaningful Use: Menu Set Objectives*<br /><ul><li>Eligible Professionals</li></ul>Drug-formulary checks<br />Incorporate clinical lab test results as structured data<br />Generate lists of patients by specific conditions<br />Send reminders to patients per patient preference for preventive/follow up care<br />Provide patients with timely electronic access to their health information<br />Use certified EHR technology to identify patient-specific education resources and provide to patient, if appropriate<br />Medication reconciliation<br />Summary of care record for each transition of care/referrals<br />Capability to submit electronic data to immunization registries/systems<br />Capability to provide electronic syndromic surveillance data to public health agencies<br />22<br />*At least 1 public health objective must be selected<br />
    81. 81. Meaningful Use: Menu Set Objectives*<br /><ul><li>Eligible Hospitals</li></ul>Drug-formulary checks<br />Record advanced directives for patients 65 years or older<br />Incorporate clinical lab test results as structured data<br />Generate lists of patients by specific conditions<br />Use certified EHR technology to identify patient-specific education resources and provide to patient, if appropriate<br />Medication reconciliation<br />Summary of care record for each transition of care/referrals<br />Capability to submit electronic data to immunization registries/systems<br />Capability to provide electronic submission of reportable lab results to public health agencies<br />Capability to provide electronic syndromic surveillance data to public health agencies<br />23<br />*At least 1 public health objective must be selected<br />
    82. 82. Meaningful Use: Stage 2<br /><ul><li>Intend to propose 2 additional Stages through future rulemaking. Future Stages will expand upon Stage 1 criteria.
    83. 83. Stage 1 menu set will be transitioned into core set for Stage 2
    84. 84. Will reevaluate measures – possibly higher thresholds</li></ul>24<br />
    85. 85. Meaningful Use: Denominators<br /><ul><li>Two types of percentage based measures are included to address the burden of demonstrating MU</li></ul>Denominator is all patients seen or admitted during the EHR reporting period<br /><ul><li>The denominator is all patients regardless of whether their records are kept using certified EHR technology</li></ul>Denominator is actions or subsets of patients seen or admitted during the EHR reporting period<br /><ul><li>The denominator only includes patients, or actions taken on behalf of those patients, whose records are kept using certified EHR technology</li></ul>25<br />
    86. 86. Meaningful Use: Applicability of Objectives and Measures<br /><ul><li>Some MU objectives are not applicable to every provider’s clinical practice, thus they would not have any eligible patients or actions for the measure denominator. Exclusions count against the 5 deferred measures
    87. 87. In these cases, the EP, eligible hospital or CAH would be excluded from having to meet that measure
    88. 88. Ex: Dentists who do not perform immunizations; Chiropractors do not e-prescribe </li></ul>26<br />
    89. 89. States’ Flexibility to Revise Meaningful Use<br /><ul><li>States can seek CMS prior approval to require 4 MU objectives be core for their Medicaid providers:
    90. 90. Generate lists of patients by specific conditions for quality improvement, reduction of disparities, research or outreach (can specify particular conditions)
    91. 91. Reporting to immunization registries, reportable lab results and syndromic surveillance (can specify for their providers how to test the data submission and to which specific destination)</li></ul>27<br />
    92. 92. Meaningful Use for EPs who Work at Multiple Sites<br /><ul><li>An EP who works at multiple locations, but does not have certified EHR technology available at all of them would:
    93. 93. Have to have 50% of their patient encounters at locations where certified EHR technology is available
    94. 94. Would base all meaningful use measures only on encounters that occurred at locations where certified EHR technology is available</li></ul>28<br />
    95. 95. MU for Hospitals that Qualify for Both Medicare & Medicaid Payments<br /><ul><li>Attest/Report on Meaningful Use to CMS for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program
    96. 96. Will be deemed meaningful users for Medicaid (even if the State has CMS approval for the MU flexibility around public health objectives)</li></ul>29<br />
    97. 97. Clinical Quality Measures (CQM) Overview<br /><ul><li>2011 – EPs, eligible hospitals and CAHs seeking to demonstrate Meaningful Use are required to submit aggregate CQM numerator, denominator, and exclusion data to CMS or the States by attestation.
    98. 98. 2012 – EPs, eligible hospitals and CAHs seeking to demonstrate Meaningful Use are required to electronically submit aggregate CQM numerator, denominator, and exclusion data to CMS or the States.</li></ul>30<br />
    99. 99. CQM: Eligible Professionals<br /><ul><li>Core, Alternate Core, and Additional CQM sets for EPs
    100. 100. EPs must report on 3 required core CQM, and if the denominator of 1or more of the required core measures is 0, then EPs are required to report results for up to 3 alternate core measures
    101. 101. EPs also must select 3 additional CQM from a set of 38 CQM (other than the core/alternate core measures)
    102. 102. In sum, EPs must report on 6 total measures: 3 required core measures (substituting alternate core measures where necessary) and 3 additional measures</li></ul>31<br />
