Deadline Approaches to Submit 2011 EHR Incentive Program Participation Data
Physicians participating in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services 2011 Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program have until Feb. 29 to submit their “meaningful use” data. To qualify for the 2011 bonus, participants must submit attestation data that demonstrates meaningful use of a qualified EHR system for 90 days. Physicians who begin participating in the 2011 or 2012 programs are eligible to receive a total incentive of $44,000 over five years. CMS will begin accepting participant attestations for the 2012 program on March 1. More information is on the American Academy of Ophthalmic Executives' EHR Central.
