In addition to the meaningful use requirements, the EHR must also be a certified product. Drummond Group has now been named by the Office of the National Coordinator for Healthcare Information Technology (ONC) as a certifying body, and Medgen EHR has received Certification by Drummond Group as a full ambulatory EHR.
Certification ensures that EHRs can perform the functions called for in the standards and certification criteria final rule that ONC released.
Providers will be able to attest to their usage during April 2011 with the first round of funding beginning as early as mid May 2011.How will eligible professionals prove EHR usage?
Providers will be directed to a link on the CMS website where they will register their EHR usage. CMS has indicated this link will be available by January 1, 2011. CMS will alert providers once this link is available; ADS will also alert our own clients as well.
However, there are two things Medicare providers can do now (if they have not done so already) and one thing Medicaid providers can do (if they have not done so already) to prepare for Stimulus incentives.
Medicare and Medicaid providers who do not yet have an NPI number must register in the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES). Go to https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov/NPPES/Welcome.do for an explanation on NPPES and instructions for registering. Skip this step if you already have an NPI.
If you are a Medicare provider and have an existing NPI, you can then go to https://pecos.cms.hhs.gov to register with PECOS (Provider Enrolment Chain and Ownership System), if you have not done so already. Only Medicare providers must register with PECOS. Medicaid providers need not register.
