CMS call to review new process for accessing PECOS, EHR program

November 1, 2013

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will host a Nov. 15 National Provider Call on its new streamlined process for securely accessing the Provider Enrollment Chain and Ownership System, Electronic Health Records Incentive Program, and National Plan and Provider Enumeration System. For more information and to register for the call, from 2-3:30 p.m. Eastern Time, click here. Some hospitals have reported that the recent changes to PECOS have affected their ability to access the attestation system to attest to meaningful use of EHRs for fiscal year 2013. AHA encourages hospitals to verify that they can access the attestation website well in advance of the Nov. 30 deadline for attestation and to participate in the National Provider Call.
