  1. Instead of fixing a few bad measures, CMS is going to go to a 90 day reporting period.

    This is mostly due to Patient Engagement through portals requiring proactive messaging from patients as a measure for MU. Like any measure that forces a mere mortal doctor to enforce proactivity on the part of a patient, this was destined to fail.

    Now it’s going to take interoperability down with it.

    Pushing back MU to a 90 day reporting period will set interoperability back another year.

    When Congress starts screaming again about lack of interoperability, CMS and ONC need to stand up and accept responsibility for delaying interoperability.

  2. It could be a 90 minute reporting period, no one is doing MU2. MU is dead to the EP. Its way too much work, the cost benefit ratio is still pegged at way too costly, too time consuming, too inefficient, too rigid, too unusable.

    Good luck with the 90 days, because it will not make a difference. MU is dead to us EPs.
