Meaningful use and the 2015 reauthorization act (macra).
A comprehensive piece of legislation, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 is designed to enhance healthcare delivery in America. As part of this act, providers must meet certain “meaningful use” objectives which have been established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The objectives are electronic health record implementation, patient data sharing and quality reporting, as well as patient engagement initiatives. Providers must demonstrate that they can use EHR technology certified in meaningful ways and have met all applicable security and privacy requirements to be eligible for MACRA payment.
To be eligible for certification, providers must provide documentation from their EHR system that demonstrates compliance with certain standards. This includes proving that they are able to successfully perform a range of tasks like recording demographics information into the system accurately; maintaining an up-to-date problem list; entering medication orders electronically; generating lists patients by conditions etc…. Providers must also show that they can interoperate with other systems to maintain continuity and avoid duplicate testing, errors or misunderstandings.
