New EHR Incentive Programs FAQs

On October 6, CMS released the final rule with comment for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. CMS also released three new FAQs:

? For the Health Information Exchange objective for meaningful use in 2015 through 2017, may an Eligible Professional (EP), eligible hospital, or critical access hospital count a transition of care or referral in its numerator for the measure if they electronically create and send a summary of care document using their Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT) to a third party organization that plays a role in determining the next provider of care and ultimately delivers the summary of care document? See FAQ 12817.

? If multiple EPs or eligible hospitals contribute information to a shared portal or to a patient's online Personal Health Record (PHR), how is it counted for meaningful use when the patient accesses the information on the portal or PHR? See FAQ 12821.

? In calculating the meaningful use objectives requiring patient action, if a patient sends a message or accesses his/her health information made available by their EP, can the other EPs in the practice get credit for the patient's action in meeting the objectives? See FAQ 12825.
