The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs provide a financial incentive for achieving ‘Meaningful Use’, which is the use of certified EHR technology to achieve health and efficiency goals. The documents included herein are a series of reports issued by CMS to assist Eligible Professionals in attesting for Meaningful Use.  As of late 2015 the program underwent many changes in the measures and process of achieving Meaningful Use. The information and resources in this section reflect these changes and provide additional information on specific exclusions and nuances.

For further details on the Meaningful Use program in general, you can visit the CMS website at https://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Legislation/EHRIncentivePrograms/index.html

Eligible Professional Attestation Worksheet for Modified Stage 2

Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program in 2016

The Eligible Professional (EP) Attestation Worksheet is for EPs in the EHR Incentive Program in 2016, and allows them to enter their meaningful use data to use as a reference when attesting for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program in the CMS system. Please note that this worksheet differs in format and presentation when compared to the Attestation User Guide and Attestation system.
For each objective with a percentage-based measure, certified EHR technology must include the capability to electronically record the numerator and denominator and generate a report including the numerator, denominator, and resulting percentage for these measures. However, eligible professionals may use additional data.

To review the changes that have taken place from the old Meaningful Use to the 2015-2017 revision, take a look at the following materials.

To ease the transition to a Modified Stage 2 Meaningful Use, CMS has created a series of Alternate Exclusions for the 2015 and 2016 reporting years to assist providers currently in Stage 1. 

You can also find a series of interactive worksheets and checklists to help guide you through the process of participating and attesting.

CMS has also compiled a series of documents providing further information on measures or circumstances that eligible providers have expressed particular difficulty with. These include topics related to:

  • Public Health Reporting
  • Broadband Access Exclusions
  • Practicing in Multiple Locations
  • Patient Electronic Access
  • Health Information Exchange
