The government is serious about enforcing Privacy and Security regulations. In addition to potential HIPAA audits, any provider who receives an electronic health record (EHR) incentive payment for either the Medicare EHR Incentive Program or the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program may be subject to a Meaningful Use audit.
A provider that fails just one element of a Meaningful Use audit not only must return the entire incentive payment for that year, but also may be scheduled for future audits in subsequent years. Whether it be erroneous data, flimsy documentation or a quality measure missed, lack of compliance with Meaningful Use standards can be a costly mistake. Let BlueOrange Compliance help your organization become audit-ready.
