Eligible Professionals (EPs), Eligible Hospitals (EHs) and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) who make a meaningful use of a certified electronic health record(EHR) are eligible for financial incentives under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 (HITECH Act). EPs, EHs and CAHs will be able to attest to meeting the “meaningful use” criteria through a special on-line portal beginning April 18, 2011.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) has posted a sneak preview of the attestation system with screenshots of the meaningful use screens that providers will complete in order to attest to meaningful use. More information about how to register and attest is available on the CMS official website for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs.
