The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has published an electronic health records meaningful use tip sheet for specialist physicians.

The sheet walks specialists through the core and menu measures under which data must be collected and reported to demonstrate meaningful use, and availability of exclusions if a measure has no relevance to a specialist’s scope of practice. There are no exclusions for clinical quality measures since a number of them are applicable to specialists, according to CMS. If no clinical quality measures are applicable, there are ways for the EHR to generate “zero values” that can be reported during attestation.
