1 REC Reported Practice Level Challenges to Achieving Meaningful Use Office of Provider Adoption Support Dawn Heisey-Grove, MPH September 10, 2012

2 Initial Program Goal: 100,000 priority primary care providers achieve meaningful use (MU) by RECs Cover 100% of the USA 2 Every REC: Has a defined service area and specific number of providers Provides unbiased, practical support throughout process Serves as two-way pipeline to federal and local resources Approach differs by REC: Independent operations Affiliation with QIOs and universities Partnership with other ONC grantees (Beacon and HIE) Variety of hospital and payer partnerships

3 Over 120,000 providers: ≈ 42% of all PCPs in US ≈ 70% of all rural providers ≈ 74% of FQHCs *Not shown: 10,000+ specialists Who RECs Are Helping 3 **Data as of

4 Who Works with the RECs? 4 **Data as of

5 Background In November, 2011, RECs were asked to enter site-level challenges in the CRM RECs are using the CRM Challenges feature in varying ways – Some are creating a “Challenges” for every site; for those sites on track, they are creating an “On Track” issue – Others are only creating “Challenges” issues for those practices that are stuck in the process 3 RECs are sending data files to OPAS external to the CRM. Those data are incorporated into these slides.

6 Challenges Categories One field captures the stage of adoption for the practice: are they trying to reach AIU, or MU? There are then 5 Challenges Types: Practice Issues, Vendor Issues, Attestation Process problems, problems with MU Measures, and an “On Track” classification Within each of the Challenges Types, there are sub-categories. A definition page is available upon request.

8 Resolved Challenges: Site Level Challenges can be resolved with at the site level or provider level At the site level, a Challenges would be resolved if: – the REC indicates the issue is “Completed” – a new issue is created to indicate the site is now on track – An “on track” issue is resolved if a new Challenges issue is created

9 Resolved Challenges: Provider Level At the provider level, all challenges are resolved if the provider receives an MU payment from CMS. Other ways a provider may have a Challenges resolved: – Attestation Process issues are resolved when a payment is received from CMS – AIU issues are resolved if an AIU payment is received by CMS – Vendor selection issues are resolved if a provider reaches M2 and the issue was created before the M2 date – All issues except Attestation Process are resolved if a provider reaches M3 – All AIU Vendor Issues when the provider reaches M2, provided the issue was created before the M2 date
