Please Support Efforts for a 90-day Meaningful Use Reporting Period for 2016
Why it Matters: The bipartisan backing for a 90-day reporting period illustrates clear support for sensible changes to the Meaningful Use program and will help hundreds of thousands of providers be successful in 2016, a year of transition particularly for EPs as they move into either the Merit-based Incentive Payment System or an Alternative Payment Model starting January 1, 2017. Further, a 90-day reporting period would offer welcomed flexibility to the program’s participants, especially as the provider community awaits other potential changes that have been signaled by CMS Acting Administrator Andy Slavitt.
CHIME is working with a bipartisan group of legislators to pass a bill making 2016 a 90-day reporting period for MU2. Please help us tell our Legislators how important it is for all of us to have the flexibility to choose a 90-day period for attestation.
The bill is gaining steam and looks to have a good group of support across the aisle along with HIT Leadership from organizations all over the country.
