Medicare EHR Incentive Program Attestation To Begin on Monday

On April 18, 2011, attestation for the CMS Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program begins. The Medicare EHR Incentive Program Attestation System will be available to eligible professionals (EPs), eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals (CAHs) on that date, enabling the next step in the process for EPs and hospitals to qualify for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. Once EPs and hospitals successfully attest through the online system, they will then be able to receive Medicare incentive payments from CMS.  I will spend Monday completing the attestation for BIDMC.

CMS has created several resources that will help EPs and hospitals successfully navigate the attestation process, which can currently be found on the CMS EHR Incentive Programs website. CMS is developing a dedicated attestation section on this website, which will be launching Monday.

Sign up for CMS’ EHR listserv updates to receive timely information and updates about the EHR Incentive Programs.

I'll let you know how it goes on Monday!

I submitted my Medicare EHR Incentive Attestation with Care360 EHR today at 9.10am.
I was the 25th physician in the US to submit the attestation to Medicare.
I started the attestation process at 8.10am.
