Meaningful Use

Meaningful Use

The Meaningful Use Incentive Program
MACRA, or the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act, was signed into law on April 26, 2015. This law repeals the previously used Sustainable Growth Rate formula with a new program to pay physicians based on performance.  This new program, called the Quality Payment Program offers 2 paths:  MIPS and APMs.

The MIPS program basically represents a coming together of several existing CMS quality programs: the Physician Quality Reporting System, the Value-Based Payment Modifiers and the Meaningful Use EHR Incentive Program.  So although Meaningful Use no longer exists as a stand-alone program, it is evolving along with other programs into CMS's attempt to bring the numerous programs into one uniform clinical quality standard.  Medicare EP’s will attest to the Advancing Care Information performance category under MIPs.

What about the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program?
Per CMS, eligible hospitals and EPs that attest directly to a state for the state’s Medicaid EHR Incentive Program will continue to attest to the measures and objectives as finalized in the 2015 EHR Incentive Programs Final Rule (80 FR 62762 through 62955).
