ACR Supports Reduced Reporting Period for Meaningful Use in 2016

The American College of Radiology (ACR) submitted comments on September 6 to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in support of the proposed ninety-day reporting period for participants in the EHR Incentive Program in 2016. Currently, Meaningful EHR Users beyond their first year of participation in the program are required to report data from the full calendar year.

The proposed change was included in the agency’s 2017 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System proposed rule.  If finalized as anticipated, 2016 would be the third straight year CMS has shortened the EHR reporting period for all participants.
