WHA Member Forum:
Update on Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) Reporting Under 
Federal Payment Programs

Wednesday, February 7, 2018
10:00 am – 10:45 am

Program Description:
This WHA Member Forum webinar will review the current computerized provider order entry (CPOE) reporting requirements for hospitals and physicians under the various federal payment programs that require demonstration of meaningful use of EHR technology, i.e., the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs for hospitals and physicians and the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for physicians and other eligible clinicians.

This complimentary webinar will explain that hospitals and physicians are no longer required to report CPOE in order to avoid Medicare penalties. Specifically, CPOE reporting is not a requirement for hospitals or physicians under the federal EHR Incentive Programs or under MIPS, with the exception of physicians participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program and for any hospital still participating in the Medicaid but not the Medicare EHR Incentive Program.

This webinar, as well as the regulatory update that WHA recently published (see December 28, 2017, edition of The Valued Voice), is the result of discussions at the WHA Physician Leaders Council regarding physician time spent utilizing CPOE technology and confusion regarding regulatory requirements of CPOE usage under federal payment programs.

This complimentary webinar is open to all WHA hospital and corporate members, but pre-registration is required. An audio recording of the webinar will be available after the event, but you must pre-register to receive the recording.  

Featured Presenter:
Andrew Brenton, Assistant General Counsel, Wisconsin Hospital Association
