The Department of Health and Human Services is currently working toward “a more seamless and streamlined way to capture the info necessary for value-based payment and ACO.”
A recent town hall session at a Kentucky regional extension center gave officials at ONC the opportunity to connect with attendees to discuss ICD-10, accountable care changes, and health information exchanges.
Also on hand were top officials from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Although no specific timeline was provided, officials from both CMS and ONC agreed that Stage 3 of Meaningful Use should provide incentive alignment opportunities. The requirement for Stage 3 criteria and incentives are expected later this year.
