New EHR Incentive Program EP Data Posted
New Data Provides Information on EPs Who Participated in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program in 2011
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has posted the 2011 Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program Eligible Professionals Public Use File (PUF) to the EHR website. This new file contains data on Eligible Professionals (EPs) who participated in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program in 2011.
The CMS 2011 Medicare EHR Incentive Program Eligible Professionals PUF provides detailed information about EPs who attested as of December 22, 2011, including each provider’s type, specialty, and his/her responses to the meaningful use core and menu measures. The PUF excludes data from hospitals in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, which will be posted at a later date.
There is no 2011 data available for participants in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, who received incentive payments in 2011 only for adopting, implementing, or upgrading to certified EHR technology.
Additional information on the PUF can be found on the Data and Reports page of the EHR website.
