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.

4 Reasons Primary Care Providers Love Their Jobs

i-love-my-jobDo what makes you happy.

That’s one of the most common pieces of advice we all hear when first selecting a career path — and primary care physicians seem to have chosen wisely. When we surveyed a group of primary care providers about their personal and professional lives, we found that 64% of doctors agreed with the statement, “I love what I do,” and 60% said they felt fulfilled.

That means despite the demands of their profession, most primary care providers find aspects of their work that make them happy to come into the office day after day. We dug into our survey results even further to find a few specific reasons why physicians love what they do.

1. Physicians improve lives

A whopping 68% of primary care physicians were inspired to become doctors for the opportunity to make a difference – and for a good reason: A primary care provider doesn’t only treat patients with existing sicknesses and diseases, but also provides preventive care to keep them from getting sick in the first place. Day by day, physicians improve population health as a whole.
