To fulfill Stage 1 of meaningful use, dermatologists need to complete all 13 core measures listed below — unless an exclusion applies — and select five additional measures to complete from a menu of 9 measures. Please note: All measures need to be performed on the patients listed in your EHR system, not just on Medicare patients.
Note: CMS extended the deadline for eligible professionals to attest to meaningful use for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program 2013 reporting year from 11:59 pm ET on Feb. 28, 2014 to 11:59 pm ET March 31, 2014.
This extension will allow more time for providers to submit their meaningful use data and receive an incentive payment for the 2013 program year, as well as avoid the 2015 payment adjustment.
This extension does not affect the deadlines for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program or any other CMS program, including the electronic submission for the Physician Quality Reporting System EHR Incentive Program Pilot.
