CMS' New Interactive Resource
CMS recently posted a new web resource for eligible professionals (EPs), My EHR Participation Timeline, to the EHR Incentive Programs website. This interactive tool allows EPs to determine what year you will meet Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3 of meaningful use in the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. It also provides information on:
- The length of time EPs are required to demonstrate meaningful use at each stage;
- The maximum incentive payment you can receive each year;
- The total incentive payment amount you will receive based on your initial year of participation; and,
- Links to helpful resources from the CMS website.
After choosing between the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, select your first year of participation and the tool will create a personalized timeline with your results. This timeline can be printed and used as a reference for successful EHR Incentive Programs participation.
