CMS Adds New Web Tool to Determine Timeline for EHR Participation
CMS recently added a new web resource for eligible professionals, called "My EHR Participation Timeline," to its EHR Incentive Programs website.
The interactive tool allows eligible professionals to determine what year they will meet stage 1, stage 2 and stage 3 of meaningful use in the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. It also provides information on the length of time eligible professionals are required to demonstrate meaningful use at each stage, the maximum incentive payment they can receive each year and links to helpful resources on the CMS website.
