Tools and Tips to Prepare for 2017 MU Attestation
We invite you to learn about Program Year 2017 (PY2017) MU attestation and related topics at our upcoming Meaningful Use Information Sessions. The same information will be covered at both sessions, so you only need to attend one.
Our intention is to make the attestation process as smooth as possible. The information sessions are designed to explore the MU requirements for PY2017, PY2018, and beyond, including topics such as Supporting Documentation, Patient Volume, Health Information Exchange, and more.
For PY2017 and PY2018, Medicaid EHR Incentive Program participants can attest to either Modified Stage 2 or Stage 3, based on either a 2014 or 2015 Edition CEHRT, or a combination of the two CEHRT editions. CMS recently announced, in the Final Rule published on 8/14/17, the option to continue with Modified Stage 2 in PY2018. We will discuss the requirements for both MU Stages.
You will have the opportunity to meet our Provider Enrollment and Verification Analysts and Technical Assistance specialists. Attendees can also take advantage of sharing their experiences with other program participants.
Tuesday, Sept. 19th | 8:30am - 2:30pm | Register
Continental Breakfast and Lunch will be provided.
Continental Breakfast & Introduction
Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Session
- Overview of 2017 Modified Stage 2 Meaningful Use
Learn about changes from PY2016. Objectives and Measures will be reviewed with emphasis on preparing for your 90-day reporting period, understanding the measures and discussing areas that have proved challenging to many providers.
- 2017 Supporting Documentation Requirements
Prior to submitting the MAPIR application, participants must upload their supporting documentation. We will explain the requirements for PY2017, and the content that must be included to prove meaningful use.
- Interoperability: Health Information Exchange (HIE), Secure Messaging, and Patient Portals
Meaningful Use objectives that require participation from other parties can be challenging. Participants can share their own experiences with patient engagement and interoperability as we explore best practices for successful attestation.
Lunch & Networking
Optional Breakout Sessions
- Stage 3, Advancing Care Information (ACI), and Other CMS Updates
Stage 3 is optional in PY2017 and PY2018, but required in PY2019. Learn the differences between Stage 3 and Modified Stage 2. Discover how Stage 3 paves the way to meeting the MIPS Advancing Care Information (ACI) requirements. This is geared towards participants who will also need to participate in MIPS.
- Avoiding Patient Volume Threshold (PVT) Pitfalls
An essential eligibility requirement for providers to participate in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is to demonstrate that the volume of Medicaid patients satisfies the required threshold. Tips on data extraction, MAPIR reporting, and supporting documentation submissions will be discussed.
