The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) (@CMSGov) wants to remind Medicare Promoting Interoperability Program participants that the electronic health record (EHR) reporting period for new and returning participants is a minimum of any continuous, self-selected, 90-day period. Eligible hospitals and CAHs must successfully attest to avoid a downward Medicare payment adjustment.
For the calendar year (CY) 2022, the last day to start the 90-day reporting period is October 3, 2022.
For CY 2022, in addition to attesting to a continuous 90-day EHR reporting period, Medicare Promoting Interoperability Program participants must:
- Use the appropriate edition of Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT),
- Attest to the required objectives and measures for the required EHR reporting period,
- Satisfy the minimum score requirement of 60 points,
- Report on the Safe Use of Opioids Electronic Clinical Quality Measure (eCQM), plus 3 self-selected eCQMs (4 eCQMs total), and
- Attest to the following:
- The annual self-assessment of the SAFER Guides measure, with a “yes/no” attestation;
- The Security Risk Analysis measure; and
- The Actions to limit or restrict the compatibility or interoperability of CEHRT attestation.
