IHANY Monthly Newsletter – August 2021
This Month’s Priorities
- CMS Reporting, Promoting Interoperability (PI): CMS released their 2021 Promoting Interoperability Guide, please review and let us know if you have any questions. In this month’s education section section you can register for a webinar detailing what is required for PI reporting. We strongly recommend that each practice designate an attendee. Remember, each TIN in IHANY will need to report at least a 90 consecutive day period of data for PI directly to CMS (If your TIN doesn’t meet or apply for an exception from reporting PI). October 3, 2021 will start the last 90 day period of the performance year. Please run your EMR PI performance report this month so we can review and make corrections before October 3rd. Please contact Brian or James with any questions.
- Schedule your patients for their Annual Wellness Visits (AWV): For 2021 CMS has determined that you can utilize telehealth to do an AWV. REMINDER: You can also do advance care planning (ACP) via telehealth and/or during an AWV. See the Population Health News section later in this notice for 2021 Medicare telehealth code updates
