CMS announced that the online Attestation System for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program will launch on April 18, 2011. Eligible professionals and eligible hospitals will be able to use this online portal to self-attest to meeting the Meaningful Use criteria.
CMS also released a preview of the Attestation System. This preview includes attestation screenshots and is intended to give examples of what the attestation process will look like. CMS promised to release additional information about the attestation process soon, including "User Guides" that will give step-by-step instructions for completing attestation, along with educational webinars that describe the attestation process in depth.
Finally, CMS noted that providers will follow a similar process using their state's Attestation System. Such providers may find their state's scheduled launch dates of their Medicaid EHR Incentive Program by clicking here.
