Meaningful Use Audits - CMS utilizing its statutory authority under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) will audit providers for the meaningful use of Electronic Medical Records as per the criteria outlined in the stage 1 objectives.
physicians who begin “meaningful use” of an EHR in 2011, the first year payment incentives will be available with greater incentives. Deploying an Electronic Health Record (EHR) does not qualify for program incentives.
It's time to roll up your sleeves. Complying with CMS Meaningful Use Criteria is requisite for hospitals to receive ARRA funding now and avoid reimbursement penalties in the years to come. (As seen in the 2013 Pharmacy Platinum Pages Buyer's Guide: rxplatinumpages.com)
