Monroe County NY Meaningful Use Seminar October 28 2010

MSSNY members can attend at no charge. SV

Now that the FINAL rule for Meaningful Use has been published, offices want to know, how easy is this to do?

The Monroe County Medical Society Health Information Technology Service Bureau will be giving an informational seminar to help them decide:

#1) “Do I (or the professionals I work with) qualify for the use of MU?”

“if so, under what program?”

#2) “Is the rule straight forward enough to do this on our own?”

if not, “do we qualify for Regional Extension Center Services?”

The presentation objectives include:

• An overview of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) Programs Created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

•Provision and Public Comment Concepts

•Define which objectives of the Stage 1 of meaningful use are optional or required (tables provided)

•Criteria in order to qualify for incentive payments

•Explain elements of objectives

•Calculation of the payment amount

•Common definitions between Medicare and MEDICAID incentive programs

•Differences between Medicare and MEDICAID incentive programs

•Information Collection Requirements (ICR)*

•Limits of the Final rule – for example “More detailed specifications and guidance on calculating the measures will be issued soon after the publication of this final rule”*

Each slide will contain direct reference page numbers from the Final Rule on Meaningful Use.
