The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology recently issued two final coordinated sets of regulations that establish the requirements for eligible providers to earn Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments (Incentives Rule) by demonstrating "meaningful use" and the certification requirements for electronic health record technology (Certification Rule). All stakeholders should move swiftly to build a solid health information technology platform to start earning the incentives as early as 2011 and position themselves for the evolution of health care reform. This White Paper provides comprehensive analysis and practical guidance regarding the regulations for eligible providers and technology vendors.
