Meaningful Use CMS Compliance Consultants

As stated by cms.gov, "The Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs provide financial incentives for the “meaningful use” of certified EHR technology for improving patient care." To receive such payments, healthcare providers must show that they are “meaningfully using” their EHRs by meeting numerous thresholds for a number of predefined objectives. Thus, CMS has effectively established these objectives for “meaningful use” so that "eligible professionals" can receive such payments. Furthermore, the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs consist of the following three (3) stages:

  • Stage 1
  • Stage 2
  • Stage 3

Note: CMS has extended the adoption and compliance deadlines to 2016 for Stage 2 and to 2017 for Stage 3.
