Modern Physician writes: The CMS’ proposed changes to the 2013 physician fee schedule also included potential additions and clarifications to the agency’s electronic prescribing and electronic health-record incentive programs as well as details on expanded reporting of provider performance data.
In the proposed rule, released July 6, the agency recommended adding new criteria, new hardship exemptions and an informal review process to the Electronic Prescribing Incentive Program. The program awards or penalizes physicians based on the extent of their use of e-prescribing.
For its Medicare EHR Incentive Pilot, the CMS also proposed continuing to use the same method of reporting clinical quality measures that was finalized in last year’s physician fee schedule.
