Greenway Marketplace: September 2014 Update

Marketplace-Blog-Update-icon-SeptemberMore than 60 Greenway Marketplace partners exhibited in the Knowledge Center at ENGAGE14, giving customers the opportunity to browse and explore Marketplace solutions. ENGAGE14 also included three Marketplace-focused breakout sessions, where customers saw live product demonstrations from a number of partners.

Prior to the conference, we asked Marketplace customers to submit reviews for solutions they currently use or have used previously for a chance to win one of several prizes. Congratulations to Linda Bourguet, CJ Early and Jennifer Flowers, the winners of our Marketplace review drawing!

Meaningful Use: Looking for Efficiencies Where You Least Expect It

inspector-looking-imageSuccessful primary care offices run like well-oiled machines: By the time the physician walks into the exam room, the insurance has been verified, the vitals have been taken, medical records are updated and the patient is prepped and ready.

To thrive in today’s challenging and complex healthcare environment, physicians and their staffs need to be efficient.

But “efficient” might not be the word that comes to mind when participating in quality-reporting and incentive programs. Practices that participate in meaningful use, patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) and the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) know there’s a huge amount of work and time that goes into meeting program requirements. So you might expect practices that participate in two or more programs to have double or triple the amount of work.

2014 Meaningful Use Final Rule

How to Proceed in Medicare and Medicaid Pathways

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued the final rule detailing 2014 meaningful use (MU) reporting and attesting options for eligible professionals (EPs). The final rule mirrors the proposal issued in May.

Under the rule, EPs who have not yet attested in 2014 because they were “unable to fully implement” 2014 certified edition electronic health record technology (CEHRT) may select from several options as detailed in Table 1. EPs unable to fully implement 2014 Edition CEHRT will make a simple declaration of that inability when they attest.

EPs need not cite detailed reasons for their inability to implement 2014 Edition CEHRT. Please note, however, that in case of an audit procedure, CMS will consider only certain reasons acceptable. We have detailed these below, along with an outline of the new attestation procedure for EPs using the 2014 options.

The attestation deadline for all EPs is Feb. 28, 2015.
