  • Must meet same eligibility requirements as other eligible EP’s
    • 15 Core measures; 5 from menu set of their choosing
    • 6 CQM’s; 3 core and 3 from menu set of their choosing

(Several MU objectives have exclusion criteria and will need to evaluate whether they meet the exclusion for each applicable objective as there is no blanket exclusion by type of EP)

  • Enter the problem list, medication list, medication allergy data, etc. directly in the EHR (RPMS)
    • NOTE: If data is entered in the dental “front end” package it does not pass through to RPMS and this would not meet the MU criteria.

How can dentists participate
  • Capture data such as demographics and vitals; it is interfaced to the RPMS PCC database
  • RPMS MU Performance measures reports access this data from the PCC database and not the EDR.
  • When this procedure is followed CMS has determined that no independent certification of the IHS/EDR is necessary to achieve MU

  • Medicaid EHR Incentive Program

Voluntary program for states to incentivize eligible providers to meaningfully use CEHRT to improve health, improve care delivery, and reduce per capita costs

  • Provider eligibility is determined by type of provider, location of service, and patient volume
  • Providers register with CMS, and then attest through SMAs, which may vary by state
  • Medicaid provider may AIU in first participation year, but must demonstrate MU thereafter
  • Providers must report MU (functional) measures and CQMs electronically by 2013
