Meaningful Use Hot Topics 2015

Thursday, January 22, 2015

As we kick off 2015, many providers are in the unique position of having to wrap up their program year 2014 Meaningful Use (MU) attestations while simultaneously shifting their focus to the program year 2015 MU attestation. 2014 was a wild ride in the world of Meaningful Use, with vendor upgrades, shorter reporting periods, and flexible reporting options. 2015 brings with a major shift of providers moving to Stage 2, the first year of payment adjustments based on program year 2013 MU performance, and a full calendar year reporting period for all providers past their first participation year.

We at PHA want to help providers navigate the first few weeks of the year, where these two program years collide by ensuring that they are aware of program year 2014 attestation deadlines, potential MU payment adjustments, and important 2015 reporting period deadlines for Stage 2. Below you'll find a six-slide presentation that is designed to help you focus in on your goals.
