By Jim Tate – We are whiling away the time today on a visit to the piedmont of North Carolina. Even though it is October it feels like the dog days of August. Humidity off the charts and I don’t even want to look at the temperature. What’s a poor boy to do?
By Jim Tate – The MACRA/MIPS program is complex enough without having to decide what is real and what is not. I recently wrote a post entitled “Fake News – MIPS Style” and in the past week I have come across additional examples of misleading information that only serves to muddy the waters.
By Jim Tate – I sure hear a lot about fake news these days. In the world of politics, we hear a constant chant: “This is fake, that is fake, everything is fake”. I guess it is in the eye of the beholder as to what is true. There is the whole truth, the partial truth, misstatements of fact and downright Pinocchio lies.
By Jim Tate – There is less than two weeks left on the clock. October 2nd is coming fast and brings the beginning of the last 90-day MIPS performance period for 2017. If plans have not already been made then this week is the last opportunity.
By Jim Tate – The lion’s share of the CMS EHR incentives have been paid out, especially for those who participated on the Medicare side of the incentive program. The Meaningful Use (MU) incentives are winding down but it is prudent to keep an eye on the rear view mirror and make sure you are up to date on past MU documentation.
By Jim Tate – I read it almost every day. “Meaningful Use (MU) is over”. “The incentives are almost all paid out”. Everyone is acting like the entire CMS EHR Incentive Program is slipping away and with it the entire concept of MU. Better hold your horses. The death knell of MU has been overplayed.
