Many participants are requesting assistance in finding appropriate eligibility dates for Program Year 2017 attestations. To assist, we have highlighted some helpful information to use when selecting dates.
Colorado House Bill 1032 was signed into law recently, allowing EMS data patient medical records to be securely exchanged with community providers.
Verato will integrate with CORHIO’s enterprise master patient index (EMPI) technology and use Referential Matching to help CORHIO’s EMPI better resolve duplicates by providing more data on which to initially match.
We have some recent go-lives to share of organizations that recently joined the CORHIO Health Information Exchange network:
Eight Days Left to Attest for Program Year 2016
A Clinical Health Information Technical Advisor, or CHITA, is essentially a practice coach focusing on healthcare information technology.
The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (the Department) has identified a defect in the MAPIR attestation system for providers attesting for the first time in the system in Year 1 as Adopt (A), Implement (I) or Upgrade (U).
Some participants are currently receiving the 502 error when attempting to attest to Program Year 2016 in the MAPIR system.
CORHIO is honored to be selected to present the following sessions at the 2018 HIMSS conference.
MAPIR Portal Update: Program Year 2016 Attestations Will be Temporarily Suspended Starting February 9, 2018
The expected temporary closing period is due to the Department upgrading the Colorado Registration and Attestation (CO R&A) Portal. The CO R&A will be unavailable for PY 2016 attestations beginning February 9, 2018 and will reopen February 22, 2018.
The Department of Healthcare Policy and Financing (the Department) has been made aware of an issue with the attestation portal where preparers are not able to select the option to attest for Program Year (PY) 2016.
As you prepare to participate in the full MIPS track next year, you’ll need to improve your chances of a high score in the four performance categories of Quality, Cost, Improvement Activities and Advancing Care Information. Participating in the CORHIO health information exchange can help with Advancing Care Information (ACI), which replaces Meaningful Use for Medicare participants, and Improvement Activities.
Due to the late opening on October 15, the Colorado Registration and Attestation system is causing an error that deems some eligibility dates in 2016 as invalid or out-of-range.
It has been noted that some providers are having difficulty registering at CMS for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program because they were not issued a Medicaid Provider ID (MID).
When attesting in the new Colorado Registration and Attestation System, you may receive an error related to the MMIS system payee record for the NPI related to the attestation.
The first landing page after participants enter the MAPIR portal seen in below screenshot asks for verification that the NPI and Provider ID accurately identifies the entity you are attesting for, but does not populate the NPI and Provider ID.
The portal is experiencing an error regarding payee information. When confirming where the incentive payment will be sent, the address appears wrong or populates the wrong location name or there is no location listed. Here is more information on how to fix this issue.
CORHIO has recorded two informational webinars for those interested in participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
Summer 2017 Quarterly Interoperability & HIE Community Roundtable - Webinar Recording Available
2017 will be a year of transition as CMS concludes the Medicare EHR Incentive Program and Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) begins. With new information coming out daily, it can be challenging to keep up. Below are a few noteworthy points of interest.
The Health Information Exchange (HIE) network that CORHIO manages is used every day by thousands of caregivers and other healthcare professionals in Colorado. It’s common that our users seek out CORHIO at new jobs – even asking about it during job interviews – because it’s become so valuable in their daily work.
Launched by Practice Innovation Program Colorado, a new online catalog and interactive self-assessment tool shows what’s available to support and advance primary care in the transformation process.
In a new webinar, Erin Dormaier, CHTS – IM, PCMH CCE, CORHIO Transformation Support Services Manager, breaks down your reporting options for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), which is one track of the Quality Payment Program that is part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). She provides tips on successful reporting for the following categories (which are likely to include things your organization is already doing).
CORHIO recognizes that Carequality may be a good addition for organizations that require care summaries created outside of CORHIO’s network. However, clinical document exchange alone does not enable fast decision-making and works best when combined with a portal that allows the user to query and retrieve real-time patient data quickly.
Within the recently signed bill, The 21st Century Cures Act, is a powerful set of regulations about interoperability, EHR certification, health information exchange, information blocking, and more.
