In a recent webinar, we discussed how CMS has redefined the Patient Engagement requirements for MIPS 2019 PI category. Additionally, in the NPRM announced at HIMSS 2019, ONC proposed a new certification criterion targeted towards the objectives that 2015 Certified EHRs will need to support going forward. It is a lot to process simultaneously, and many of our clients (both providers and EHR vendors) have reached out to us for clarification of these requirements and the associated security concerns, which this blog aims to address.
Last week, CMS released the QPP final rule for 2019. We will be doing a series of blogs and webinar to discuss the changes in details and how it impacts EHR developers and providers. However, there is one change that deserves a blog of it’s own. In my opinion, it is the biggest change since the start of Meaningful Use program almost a decade ago.
