Also, CMS is making changes under the Medicare EHR Incentive Program for eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals attesting to meaningful use by eliminating the clinical decision support and computerized order entry objectives and measures beginning in 2017. The changes also apply to hospitals that are eligible to participate in both the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs – dual-eligible hospitals.
