“Tips for Overcoming the Gray Areas of Meaningful Use Stage 1 for Safety Net Providers”
Tuesday December 13, 2011, 2 pm EST
This webinar provides tips and guidance of how safety net providers, such as health centers, critical access hospitals, and rural health clinics can overcome common gray areas of meeting Meaningful Use Stage 1 objectives. Gray areas are objectives within the final rule that are still not clear to providers. Presenters from the Regional Extension Centers (REC) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will review these problem areas based on previous comments and questions directed to HRSA, CMS, and ONC staff from safety net providers. These areas include: dealing with vendors and other EHR issues; attesting data to CMS and State Medicaid programs; troubleshooting quality measures; and other Meaningful Use Stage 1 problems that safety net providers have encountered. In addition, this webinar will include a presentation by CMS Staff on “Adopt, Implement, and Upgrade” (AIU) of electronic health records.
Presenters include staff from both the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and Regional Extension Centers. Questions to presenters are welcome ahead of the event and may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
