Are You Prepared for an EHR Incentive Payment Meaningful Use Audit?
Numerous governmental organizations and politicians have grumbled over the lack of oversight for electronic health record (EHR) incentive payment programs. In light of these issues and others—including the end of scheduled EHR program funding—audit processes are continuing.
An eligible hospital (EH) can have several different EHR audits going on at once—Medicare HITECH, Medicaid prepayment, Medicaid AIU, Medicaid post-payment, Meaningful Use (MU), Federal OIG audits and others. Any of these can be a huge task and have negative effects on incentive payments.

We understand the aggravation and time lost to each of these audits, and we’ve developed services to help you find additional dollars and—more importantly—keep them. Our EHR consulting services help lessen the hassle of these potentially overwhelming audit processes.
