Dear Centricity™ Practice Solution and Centricity EMR Customers:
Building on the content we already shared in our recent ONC 2015 Edition Preparedness webinar, we have created a new webinar series on the topic to support your transition. The first webinar begins on May 23.
As I mentioned previously, we want to be sure you are aware that compliance with the 2019 CMS (Medicare and Medicaid) quality payment programs1 will require a four-step process that we estimate can take up to three months. This process must be complete before the start of your performance period, so the time to prepare is now.
You may already know that all eligible clinicians are required to use 2015 CEHRT for the reporting of performance in the Promoting Interoperability (PI) performance category in 2019. Our certified software, Centricity Practice Solution 12.3 or Centricity EMR 9.12, must be in use for the entire performance period, which is a minimum of 90 consecutive days.
However, we want to be sure you know that meeting the requirements involves more than an upgrade. In addition, you must enable technology and complete workflow verifications to ensure compliance with the PI objectives and measures. Each organization is slightly different, yet we estimate it can take up to three months to complete all preparation steps. This webinar series will dive more deeply into important aspects of the process.
We cannot over-emphasize the importance of preparing early. Please join our webinar series to learn more about key activities that must be complete before the start of your performance period.
