Promoting Interoperability
Promoting Interoperability Overview

Join the Quest for Excellence community for MU and MIPS discussion with other RevolutionEHR customers

The only doctors that need to attest to the renamed version of Meaningful Use, Promoting Interoperability (PI), are those participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program and are still due bonus money.

This is likely to cause confusion so let’s answer the question: “What am I supposed to do in 2019?”

If you are not involved in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, turn your attention to MIPS.  We’ve built a MIPS Resource Center for you here.

If and only if you are in the Medicaid arm of the Incentive Program and are still due bonus money, you’ll need to achieve PI success over an “any 90 consecutive day” period in 2019.

Very importantly, any 2019 reporting period requires 2015 Edition certified EHR technology.  Rev360 will release this version of RevolutionEHR in the first quarter of 2019.  Until then, initiation of a 2019 reporting period is not advisable.

Promoting Interoperability success not only includes success on each of the measures summarized below, but also reporting clinical quality measure (CQM) data for 6 measures over the full calendar year.  The CQMs are tracked automatically by RevolutionEHR based on the ideas discussed in this guide.  While statistical performance on these measures is not important for PI success (i.e. there are no thresholds to meet), it can be involved in scoring determinations for other programs such as the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

The attestation deadline for 2019 reporting periods is specific to each state agency but, since it will include a full calendar year of CQM data, it will not be available until early 2019.  In other words, you very well might complete your 90 days of PI early in the year, but you cannot complete attestation without 365 days worth of CQM data.  Please contact your state for official attestation guidance.

Please note that CMS has organized three measures together in two distinct groups  These groups require the provider to pass the threshold for at least two of the three measures in the group or qualify for associated exclusions.  The scorecard in RevolutionEHR provides visualization of these groups:
