CMS Accepting Proposals for New Measures for the Medicare Promoting Interoperability Program
CMS (May 22, 2020) – The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services is accepting measure proposals for the Medicare Promoting Interoperability Program through July 1, 2020. Measures should build on the use of Certified Electronic Health Record technology and advance the use of the 2015 Edition Certification Standards and Criteria to promote interoperability and health information exchange, improve program efficiency, provide patient access to health information and reduce clinician burden. Submitted measures must also align with the Merit-based Incentive Payment System Promoting Interoperability Performance Category. Additional measure criteria are available on CMS' website.
