Some good “MU” resources

Below, please find a link to a new tip sheet from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), available from the CMS website, on the “Stage 1 EHR Meaningful Use Measures for Eligible Professionals”: http://www.cms.gov/EHRIncentivePrograms/Downloads/EP-MU-TOC-Core-and-MenuSet-Objectives.pdf

This sheet provides an outline of the 25 Core and Menu Set measures that make-up meaningful use for eligible professionals for Stage 1 of the CMS EHR Incentive Program.  Included are definitions of terms, attestation requirements, and additional clarifications, as applicable, by measure.

As a reminder, you can access the most current information available from CMS on the EHR Incentive Programs at www.cms.gov/EHRIncentivePrograms.  We also maintain a list of Frequently Asked Questions on the program that is updated regularly.  The FAQs are available by category at www.cms.gov/EHRIncentivePrograms/99j_Frequently_Asked_Questions.asp and the complete list is available here: http://questions.cms.hhs.gov/app/answers/list/p/21,26,1139

Additionally, you can follow the CMS Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/CMSGov for ongoing information on the Medicare program.
