Successfully Defended Physician During A Meaningful Use Audit Response

Level II Physician Sole Practitioner

Primary Issue:
A Michigan health care provider underwent a pre-payment audit to determine whether his practice’s implementation of electronic health records (“EHR”) had met the meaningful use requirements for 2015. He immediately contacted Chapman law Group to defend his attestation and to provide a proper response to the objective measures requirements.

Our goal was to provide proper documentation and support to show that the eligible provider had achieved the objective measures for the government’s meaningful use requirements, track the metrics employed by the provider in achieving those requirements, and where they were insufficient or absent, provide an exclusion that would allow the provider safe harbor for non-compliance. Of the ten (10) eligible provider objective measures (“EPOM”), five (5) exclusions were applied and one (1) course of corrective action was implemented. Instead of potentially facing charges under the False Claims Act the provider was paid the governmental incentive for properly achieving meaningful use or the exclusions thereunder.
