CMS Releases EHR Incentive Program Guidance on Audits

On April 9, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced additional guidance related to the pre-payment and post-payment EHR Incentive Program audits.  The recently released material includes a fact sheet addressing supporting documentation that meaningful use participants need for an audit, as well as a sample audit request letter from the CMS contractor, Figliozzi and Company.

Of note, the fact sheet includes an extensive list of potential documentation to demonstrate compliance with the yes/no  meaningful use measures (note that certified EHR technology is currently required to automatically calculate the percentage-based measures).  Verifying compliance with the yes/no measures was one of the big sticking points of the November 2012 HHS Office of Inspector General report on “oversight of meaningful use.”
