CMS: Hospitals to submit meaningful use data via QualityNet in 2018

Hospitals and critical access hospitals participating in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program must report meaningful use data through the QualityNet secure portal beginning Jan. 2, 2018, CMS announced this week, according to the American Hospital Association.

The existing Medicare & Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Registration and Attestation System will be available to Medicaid-only hospitals. These hospitals should contact their state Medicaid agencies for information on how to attest to meaningful use.

Hospitals that attest for both Medicare and Medicaid incentive programs should register and attest for the Medicare program on the QualityNet system, as well as contact their state Medicaid agencies to submit Medicaid data.
