AHA News Now
Dec 21, 2012
Dec. 31 is the last day physicians and other eligible professionals can complete their 90- or 365-day reporting period to attest to meaningful use of electronic health records in calendar year 2012 under the Medicare EHR incentive program. To benefit fully from Medicare EHR incentives, EPs must meet federal requirements for meaningful use in CY 2012 and attest to meaningful use by Feb. 28, 2013. Those wishing to attest should consider visiting the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' attestation website well in advance of the deadline to ensure they are familiar with the complex process. EPs participating in the Medicaid EHR program should check the attestation deadline for their state. For more information, visit www.cms.gov.
