•Run your Meaningful Use Dashboard. Confirm that you have achieved Meaningful Use by successfully achieving 15 Core and 5 Menu Set measures (unless you qualify for exclusions for your 90 day period)
Note: One of your Menu Set measures must be a public health menu measure (#9 or #10) even if you are claiming an exclusion.
•Review the core Clinical Quality Measures as well the 3 additional Quality Measures you will be attesting for. Note: EPs must report on 6 total clinical quality measures: 3 required core measures and 3 additional measures (selected from a set of 38 clinical quality measures).If you are reporting 0% for the core measures, you must also report 0% for the alternate core measures. For the additional measures, it is acceptable to have a ‘0’ denominator provided the EP does not have an applicable population.
•Print out your Meaningful Use Dashboard results for each provider (s).
Note: Always keep a hard copy of your Dashboard results on file as a back-up to your Attestation numbers
•When you are ready to attest, visit https://ehrincentives.cms.gov to begin your Attestation.
