1 Meaningful Use and the EHR Incentive Program
NIHB Annual Consumer Conference

2 EHR Incentive Program The Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs will provide incentive payments to eligible professionals (EPs), eligible hospitals (EHs) and critical access hospitals (CAHs) as they adopt, implement, upgrade or demonstrate meaningful use of certified EHR technology. EHR Incentive Program rewards providers/hospitals for achieving MU.

3 Meaningful Use Eligibility Certified EHR Meaningful Use Measures
Clinical Quality Measures Components of MU: - Eligibility: requirements for providers/hospitals within Medicare/Medicaid. - Certified EHR: RPMS is now certified – all patches and applications are released/available - MU Measures – how you are utilizing the EHR’s functionality. - Clinical Quality Measures: no targets – simply report performance. In general, an EP/EH will demonstrate MU in Stage 1 by utilizing certified EHR technology to: - Meet the applicable MU measures, and - Report on the applicable clinical quality measures. Satisfying each of these requirements will qualify the EP/EH for an incentive payment.

4 Provider Eligibility To be eligible for the Medicaid incentive program, a provider must have a Medicaid patient volume of 30%.

5 Meaningful Use Eligibility Certified EHR Meaningful Use Measures
Clinical Quality Measures Certified EHR: RPMS EHR is certified for both inpatient and outpatient facilities. EPs/EHs will use same system.

The URL to access the application is http://ditdev4.d1.na.ihs.gov:9090/DocViewer The logon username & password are D1 credentials so each user needs a D1 account and must be added to the Active Directory group that allows access to the HIE Viewer. The AD Group is “IHS NHINC GUI Users”. Contact the help desk to get this added. Current list of required patches/applications is always available at – look for “Application Checklist” link.

7 Meaningful Use Eligibility Certified EHR Meaningful Use Measures
Clinical Quality Measures MU Measures – how you are utilizing the EHR’s functionality. Most measures are same for EPs/EHs, some differences.

8 Meaningful Use Measures
Yes/No Measures Implement drug-drug and drug-allergy checks Generate at least one report listing patients with a specific condition Measures with Targets Record smoking status for more than 50% of patients Provide patient-specific education resources for more than 10% of patients MU Measures – how you are utilizing the EHR’s functionality. EPs required to meet 20 measures, EHs required to meet 19 measures. *Note: This slide includes brief descriptions of some sample measures. This is not a full list of all MU measures.

9 Meaningful Use Measures
EP Core Set Measures (15) EH Core Set Measures (14) Use CPOE for medication orders Implement drug-drug and drug-allergy checks Record demographics ePrescribing Maintain up-to-date problem list, medication list, medication allergy list Record and chart changes in vital signs Record smoking status Implement one clinical decision support rule Report clinical quality measures EPs/EHs must meet every measure in the core set. *Note: This slide includes brief descriptions of core set measures. This is not a full list of all MU measures; this does not list all requirements for each measure. Provide patients an electronic copy of health info upon request Provide clinical summaries for office visits Provide electronic copy of discharge instructions upon request Capability to electronically exchange key clinical information (perform test) Protect electronic health information (security risk analysis)

10 Meaningful Use Measures
EP Menu Set Measures (10) EH Menu Set Measures (10) Implement drug formulary checks Incorporate clinical lab test results into certified EHR Generate lists of patients by specific conditions Record advance directives Send reminders to patients Provide patients with timely electronic access to their health information Use certified EHR to identify and provide patient-specific education resources EPs/EHs must meet 5 measures in the menu set, including one public health measure. *Note: This slide includes brief descriptions of menu set measures. This is not a full list of all MU measures; this does not list all requirements for each measure. Perform medication reconciliation for patients referred to the EP/EH Provide summary of care records for patients referred to other providers/facilities Submit electronic data to immunization registries Submit electronic syndromic surveillance data to public health agencies Submit electronic data on reportable lab results to public health agencies

11 Meaningful Use Eligibility Certified EHR Meaningful Use Measures
Clinical Quality Measures Clinical Quality Measures – no targets, simply report performance. Different CQM sets for EPs and EHs.

12 Clinical Quality Measures: EPs
Core/Alternate Core Set (6) Hypertension Tobacco Use Assessment/Cessation Intervention Adult Weight Screening/Follow-up Weight Assessment/Counseling for Children Adult Influenza Immunization Childhood Immunization Additional Measures (38) Breast Cancer Screening; Cervical Cancer Screening; Colorectal Cancer Screening EPs report rates for 6 CQMs. May report zero denominators, but those do not count as rates. EP measures look like GPRA measures (e.g., hypertension, tobacco use assessment and cessation intervention, influenza immunization for adults), BUT - have slightly different logic (e.g., different age range), - and are calculated/reported for each provider, not facility aggregate like GPRA.

13 Clinical Quality Measures: EHs
Emergency Department (2) Median time from ED arrival to ED departure for admitted patients; median time from admit decision time to ED departure time for admitted patients Stroke (7) Anticoagulation for A-fib/flutter, discharge on statins, stroke education, etc. Venous Thromboembolism (6) Anticoagulation overlap therapy, discharge instructions, etc. EHs will report rates for 15 CQMs in three areas: ED, stroke, and VTE.

The RECs will support and serve health care providers to help them quickly become adept and meaningful users of EHRs. RECs are designed to make sure that primary care clinicians get the help they need to use EHRs. Provide training and support services to assist providers in adopting EHRs Offer information and guidance to help with EHR implementation Provide technical assistance RECs are designed to support providers in achieving MU. State RECs vs. NIHB REC. NIHB REC is working in collaboration with IHS to provide support. REC funding supports the work of EHR deployment team, clinical consultants providing ongoing EHR training, development of resources, etc.
