Important EHR Attestation Information

To: Hospitals participating in the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program

RE: OIG Audit

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) is conducting an audit of the Washington EHR incentive program. As part of the Washington audit, they have identified a sample of Eligible Hospitals (EH’s) and are requesting detailed eligibility data from those hospitals. Please contact us at Healthit@hca.wa.gov if you need a copy of your Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Hospital Incentive Payment Calculation. For your convenience, these calculations were completed by the Health Care Authority prior to your first attestations.

Attention Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program participants:

If you are attesting in 2015 please continue to use the available 2014 program documents. This includes the 2014 Stage 1 and Stage 2 Pre-Payment Survey (survey monkey) and Meaningful Use attestation PDF’s. All documentation is being reviewed and updated, but will not be completed until CMS finalizes the Proposed Rule for the 2015-2017 program years. In the meantime, you may use the 2014 documents to attest for 2015 as it is currently relevant.
