Description Biography

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) have changed the priorities for all type of providers and their electronic health records (EHRs). The key goals now are "interoperability," "meaningful quality measures," and "patients over paperwork." CMS has revised its 2019 payment incentive and quality programs to emphasize these goals. And you must now shift behaviors, care pathways, and your EHR use to meet those goals. New proposed regulations specify these changes. This webcast will provide the details on how these new programs will impact providers, their EHRs, and revenue.
