Public Service Announcement: CMS Working on Meaningful Use Attestation System Issue

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) staff are aware of the problem in which EHR Incentive Program participants are unable to select the appropriate exclusion from measure 1 of objective 8, “patient electronic access.” The agency is working to identify a potential solution by either correcting the attestation system or addressing the issue retrospectively. CMS and ACR will release information for program participants when a solution is identified.

In the meantime, any EHR Incentive Program participants who plan to use the available exclusion (for “neither orders nor creates”) from measure 1 of objective 8 should delay their attestations for CY 2015 reporting periods until a fix or workaround is announced in the very near future.

Again, this only impacts program participants who plan to use the appropriate exclusion from measure 1, objective 8.  All other program participants should proceed with their attestations as planned.
