Promoting Interoperability—Providers

Successfully navigating the complex and evolving Promoting Interoperability landscape can be a daunting task. We have a track record of helping providers make progress toward compliance in the most efficient and effective way, which translates into lower costs of implementation, assurance of maximum reimbursements, and protection against penalties and costly audits.

We will provide:

  • Eligibility determination and registration support
  • eCQM/PQRS review and alignment
  • Action plan and recommendations
  • Attestation assistance
  • Ongoing guidance on requirements and timelines

2018 Promoting Interoperability

For all returning participants, the EHR reporting period is a minimum of any continuous 90 days between January 1 and December 31, 2018 for Meaningful Use measures, while electronic Clinical Quality Measures will have a full 2018 calendar year reporting period. Electronic Clinical Quality Measures are expected to be reported by using a QRDAIII file for 2018.

  • Providers attesting to Stage 2 objectives and measures using 2014 and/or 2015 EHR technology certified.
  • Providers attesting to Stage 3 objectives and measures must use 2015 EHR technology certified.

*All EPs will be required to report on Stage 3 measures and use a 2015 EHR technology certified in 2019.
