Auditing Meaningful Use of your EHR System
Thursday, February 20, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (PST)
This training on Medicare and Medicaid compliance will teach the attendees best practices for conducting a self audit of Meaningful Use Attestation submitted annually for incentive compensation. You will learn how to prepare and conduct an audit to ensure your compliance with the EHR attestation process and required documentation protocols.
Why Should You Attend:
Providers who receive an EHR incentive payment for either the Medicare or Medicaid EHR Incentive Program potentially may be subject to an audit. A provider’s failure to pass this audit will result in the forfeiture of significant funds received under the incentive program. It is imperative that a provider has the sufficient evidence and documentation to support its attestation of complying with the Meaningful Use standards.
A best practice to ensure this compliance is for the provider to conduct an internal audit of its Meaningful Use Attestation. This audit should be conducted each year that the attestation is submitted to CMS.
Attend this 90-minute webinar to learn how to properly conduct this audit, what documentation is required to support your attestation, and how to strengthen your process so that it may hold up under the scrutiny of an audit from CMS.
Areas Covered in the Webinar:
- Learn how to conduct a self audit of Meaningful Use of EHR
- Review an audit work plan that details the steps to be performed for this audit
- Understand what type of source documents need to be retained to support the attestation
- Determine the different types of documentation needed to support “percentage-based” and “non-percentage based” objectives.

- Consideration for the need to assess the information security controls of your EHR
- How to prepare for a CMS audit of your EHR
