Reminder: Meaningful Use Attestation Deadlines for 2016
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced earlier this week that CMS’s Registration and Attestation System for the EHR Incentive Program is now open. Hospitals and physicians participating in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program must use the Registration and Attestation System to attest to the 2016 meaningful use reporting requirements by February 28, 2017, in order to avoid a Medicare reimbursement penalty in 2018. The 2016 EHR reporting period for hospitals and physicians is any continuous 90 days between January 1 and December 31, 2016.
The CMS announcements and the CMS Registration and Attestation System can be found here:
