Reminder: CMS call tomorrow on EHR incentive programs

August 10, 2010

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services tomorrow will host a conference call for hospitals on the Medicare and Medicaid incentive programs for electronic health records. Hospitals should register online for the call, which will review specifics such as who is eligible to participate, the size of the incentives, participation and payment milestones, and how to report on "meaningful use" measures. Hospitals and individual practitioners also can register to participate Thursday in a CMS question-and-answer session on the programs. Both calls are scheduled for 2-3:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
