MU in 2014 & Don't forget about ICD10

July 1st, 2014

Meaningful Use Stage 2 "MGMA & AMA both want MU Exemption extension" http://www.healthcareitnews.com/news/mgma-ama-want-mu-exemption-extension

Every provider and Office Manager needs to be pushing legislators to allow ALL practices to continue with MU Stage 1 (at a minimum). It would probably help to add the penalizing physicians for things that are out of their control is unethical and should not occur!

 

Let's not forget about ICD10, yes, that ugly word is back in the headlines: "Even if the ICD-10 compliance date is farther away than it once was, it will arrive eventually. (For real, this time. We think.) And while you'd be forgiven for taking a foot off the proverbial gas, this is time that should be spent pushing ahead with preparedness plans."  http://www.healthcareitnews.com/news/prime-time-icd-10-starts-now

Who knows whether or not CMS will make October 1, 2015 a hard date for ICD10. Just make sure that you have a plan in the event they do.
