In October of 2014, PHA and the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) partnered to receive a 90/10 matching grant (for which Purdue pays the 10%) of $2.3M from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to extend quality reporting services to Medicaid-eligible EPs until 2017. An additional $4.39M continued the program until September of 2020 as well as expanded the service offerings. In November of 2018, $12M from CMS allowed PHA and the FSSA to continue to provide direct, technical assistance to the state’s Medicaid providers for another two years as well as to address several clinical challenges impacting long-term care and the opioids crisis.
Greenway Health EHR software issues
Are you a Greenway Health EHR software customer?
In the fall of 2018, Greenway Health, LLC reached out to their customers regarding measure calculation errors affecting two Promoting Interoperability measures: View, Download, Transmit (VDT), and Patient-Specific Education. These measures are calculating numerators at higher values than they should.
Greenway Health is actively working to fix the issues, and has reached out to notify customers using the impacted products, versions, and CHPL ID numbers. If you are affected by this issue, please provide your information to the Indiana Family and Social Service Administration (FSSA) by filling out the form below.
Should you attest to the Indiana Medicaid PI Program Year 2018?
Indiana Medicaid Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program providers impacted by this this calculation error are ADVISED NOT TO ATTEST to the measures for IMPIP program year 2018 using your current reports.
What to do now: Greenway representatives have stated that fixes may not occur until late 2019. In the meantime, providers can log into the MAPIR attestation system and enter program year 2018 Medicaid patient volume data. If ― after the issues are fixed by Greenway Health and you have updated the Greenway Health product ― you still achieve the PI measure thresholds, you may then re-access your application in MAPIR, enter the remaining data, and submit the application for processing.
If you are audited: In the event that you attest using the deficient CEHRT and are randomly selected for an audit, you will not be penalized during the post-payment audit if you were unaware of CEHRT deficiencies at the time of their attestation. However, now that Greenway Health has alerted states and their customers of known issues, you should not attest to Meaningful Use with data they know to be incorrect.
As a reminder, per regulation, eligible providers must maintain documentation to support attestations for at least six (6) years.
