Show Support for HR 5481, Flexibility in Health IT Reporting Act

Attesting to Meaningful Use has its challenges.

This is a request to make the reporting period for 2015 only 3 months instead of 12, thus giving us all more time to comply with the standards. SV

I recommend going to the link by the end of the month.

In early September, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a final rule on 2014 Meaningful Use reporting that offered some level of flexibility for providers who are attempting to use Certified EHR Technology to report on their adherence to Meaningful Use Stage 1 or Stage 2 in 2014. The final rule gives flexibility for 2014, but requires a full-year of Meaningful Use reporting for 2015, which for hospitals starts in one week on October 1, 2014, and in three months for eligible professionals (January 1, 2015). The short implementation window is an incredibly difficult challenge for even the most prepared providers. On September 16, Representative Renee Ellmers (R-NC-02) introduced H.R. 5481 - The Flexibility in Health IT Reporting (Flex-IT) Act of 2014. Rep. Jim Matheson (D-UT-04) has signed on as an original co-sponsor. This important legislation would ensure health care providers receive the flexibility they need to successfully comply with HHS’ Meaningful Use Program in 2015. The Flex-IT Act will allow providers to report on their meaningful use compliance in 2015 for a three-month reporting period as opposed to a full year. This shortened reporting period is an important first step in helping to ensure providers remain in the Meaningful Use program and continue to use IT to support healthcare transformation. Your immediate attention and action is needed to help Congress understand the importance of this legislation! Use the HIMSS Legislative Action Center to get your member of Congress involved!

CMS Telemedicine proposal for 2015 Fact Sheet

This a a good first step towards acknowledging that managing care requires multiple reimbursable approaches. SV

Primary care and complex chronic care management
Medicare continues to emphasize primary care management services by beginning to make separate payment for chronic care management (CCM) services beginning in 2015. In last year’s final rule, we established policy to make separate payment for non-face-to-face chronic care management services for Medicare beneficiaries who have multiple, significant chronic conditions (two or more). Chronic care management services include regular development and revision of a plan of care, communication with other treating health professionals, and medication management.
This proposed rule addresses three aspects of CCM services. We propose a payment rate of $41.92 for the code that can be billed no more frequently than once per month per qualified patient. We also propose to allow greater flexibility in the supervision of clinical staff providing CCM services. Finally, we are not proposing to establish separate standards that practitioners and practices furnishing this service would have to meet, as we had indicated last year. Upon further review, we believe the scope of service requirements for CCM, most of which were finalized last year, would be sufficient for practitioners to deliver CCM. We are proposing one additional requirement – standards for electronic health records – and seek comment on whether additional standards are needed. Payment for CCM is only one part of a multi-faceted CMS initiative to improve Medicare beneficiaries’ access to primary care. Models being tested through the Innovation Center will continue to explore other primary care innovations.

CMS and ONC Release NPRM Allowing CEHRT Flexibility and Extending Stage 2

Keep sending in the feedback. SV

Today, CMS and ONC released a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would allow providers participating in the EHR Incentive Programs to use the 2011 Edition of certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT) for calendar and fiscal year 2014. 
The NPRM will grant flexibility to providers who are experiencing difficulties fully implementing 2014 Edition CEHRT to attest this year. The proposed rule would allow providers to use EHRs that have been certified under the 2011 Edition, a combination of the 2011 and 2014 Editions, or the 2014 Edition.
Beginning in 2015, all eligible providers would be required to report using 2014 Edition CEHRT.
2014 Participation Options
Under this proposal, valid only for the 2014 reporting year, providers would be able to use 2011 Edition CEHRT for either Stage 1 or Stage 2, would have the option to attest to the 2013 definition of meaningful use core and menu objectives, and use the 2013 definition CQMs.
Providers currently working on Stage 1 in 2014 would be able to demonstrate:
  • Stage 1 (2013 Definition) using 2011 Edition CEHRT, or using a combination of 2011 and 2014 Edition CEHRT; or
  • Stage 1 (2014+ Definition) using 2014 Edition CEHRT.
Providers currently working on Stage 2 in 2014 would be able to demonstrate:
  • Stage 1 (2013 Definition) using 2011 Edition CEHRT, or using a combination of 2011 and 2014 Edition CEHRT;
  • Stage 1 (2014+ Definition) using 2014 Edition CEHRT; or
  • Stage 2 (2014+ Definition) using 2014 Edition CEHRT.
Extending Stage 2
The proposed rule also includes a provision that would formalize CMS and ONC’srecommended timeline to extend Stage 2 through 2016. If finalized, the earliest a provider would participate in Stage 3 of meaningful use would be 2017.
For More Information

Eligible Professionals Must Start Medicare EHR Participation in 2014 to Earn Incentives

Important Medicare Deadline Approaching for Eligible Professionals
If you are an eligible professional for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, 2014 is the last year you can start participation in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program in order to receive incentive payments.
Eligible professionals who begin participation in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program after 2014 will not be able to earn an incentive payment for that year or any subsequent year of participation.
If you choose to participate in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program for the first time in 2014, you should begin your 90-day reporting period no later than July 1, 2014and submit attestation by October 1, 2014 in order to avoid the payment adjustment in 2015.
Note: October 1 is the attestation deadline for eligible professionals in their first year of participation to avoid the payment adjustment. However, eligible professionals who miss this deadline can still demonstrate meaningful use during the last 90-day reporting period of the year (October - December 2014) and earn an incentive payment for 2014.
Providers Who First Begin Participation in 2014 must:
To Earn Your Maximum Medicare Incentive
  • Demonstrate 90 days of Stage 1 of meaningful use in 2014 to earn up to $11,760.
  • Demonstrate a full year of Stage 1 of meaningful use in 2015 to earn up to $7,840.
  • Demonstrate a full year of Stage 2 of meaningful use in 2016 to earn up to $3,920.
If you successfully demonstrate meaningful use each year beginning in 2014, your total payment amount could be as much as $23,520.

Additional Resources

The EHR Incentive Program website offers several helpful tools and resources so you can successfully begin participation:

Governor Cuomo Names Primary Care Partnership as "Pay for Success" Finalist

Congratulations to the Finalists! SV

Governor Cuomo Names Primary Care Partnership as "Pay for Success" Finalist

(March 14, 2014)  Governor Andrew Cuomo last week announced that a primary care partnership is one of four finalists for New York State's "Pay for Success" initiative.  The partnership consists of the Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC), three federally qualified community health centers - HRHCare Community Health, The Institute for Family Health, Open Door Family Medical Centers, Inc., and Hudson Information Technology for Community Health (HITCH). 

In announcing the finalists on March 6th, Governor Cuomo stated: "This public-private partnership model is one we see working over and over again and one that saves taxpayers money and improves how we deliver services here in New York." Read the Governor's press release here.

The partnership seeks to reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes among adults in New York City and the Hudson Valley by improving the identification of at-risk patients, and engaging patients in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) "National Diabetes Prevention Program" (NDPP). Evidence shows that successful completion of the NDPP reduces a patient's risk of getting diabetes by 58%. The three health centers care for roughly 140,000 adult patients: an estimated 8.8% are diabetic and at least 8.3% are prediabetic. The five-year initiative is expected to benefit about 3,600 patients and save about $10 million in health care costs. Longer term cumulative savings to all levels of government are projected at $47 million. The award will be final upon approval of the State budget and completion of a contract between the partnership and the State.

"Pay for Success" projects, often financed through Social Impact Bonds, are an innovative method of funding projects that benefit the public. In New York's Pay for Success program, the state and service providers (such as healthcare providers) will agree upon performance goals, and private and philanthropic investors will fund the projects at no initial cost to the state. The state will repay investors based on the program's performance, and will only make payments if the goals are achieved. 

PCDC is a nonprofit that provides affordable capital, expert technical assistance and public advocacy to expand and transform primary care in underserved communities to improve health outcomes, lower health costs and reduce disparities. HRHCare Community HealthThe Institute for Family Health and Open Door Family Medical Centers, Inc. are federally qualified health center networks that operate 50 community health centers in New York State.  The centers offer primary care, dental care and mental health care for children and adults.  All of the centers have been designated Patient Centered Medical Homes by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.HITCH is a non-profit coalition that promotes high quality health care among safety-net primary care providers.
