Last July, eligible providers anxiously awaited the final rule from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding meaningful use. Many wondered about requirements to get the stimulus money, and it was still unclear about what type of EHR system they would need to use. Since then, incentive payments have started going out, several agencies have been named ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Bodies (ATCB), and CMS is moving to finalize Phase 2 of the program.
To get the latest on these developments and more, watch our April podcast, Meaningful Use and the HITECH Act: More Things You Need to Know. It is a follow-up to Nuesoft’s August 2010 podcast, where we reviewed the Top Five Things You Need to Know. We dig a little deeper this time in our discussion of the incentive payments, timelines and what you should look for in a certified EHR system.
