Are you a provider participating in Stage 2 of meaningful use? If so, use the new CMS Stage 2 Meaningful Use Attestation Calculator to determine if you will successfully meet Stage 2 requirements.
Like the Stage 1 calculator, eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAHs) can enter and review their data for each measure. The tool then calculates whether or not you will successfully demonstrate Stage 2 of meaningful use. A results page explains why you may or may not receive an incentive payment by displaying a pass/fail summary for each measure.
Take four easy steps to get started:
Select your provider type: eligible professional or eligible hospital/CAH
Answer questions on your meaningful use core objectives
Answer questions on your meaningful use menu objectives
Receive your results
Be sure to answer each measure you intend to meet by either filling in the numerator and denominator values or marking down an exclusion (for those that apply).
Please note: The attestation calculator is not actual attestation and does not guarantee that you will meet the program’s qualifications. It is only a guide of whether or not you would meet the program’s Stage 2 meaningful use requirements.
Providers who have completed at least two years of Stage 1 of meaningful use will demonstrate Stage 2 in 2014. Below are additional Stage 2 resources.
