Responses to a Medical Group Management Association survey of its members shows an "enormous" amount of misunderstanding of the electronic health records meaningful use incentives program, says Robert Tennant, senior policy advisor for government affairs at MGMA.

At a session during MGMA's Annual Conference, Oct. 24-27 in New Orleans, Tennant and Leah Cohen, a government affairs representative for the organization, will try to bring some clarification to MU. They will discuss what is required, who is eligible and what steps to take to get started.

Tennant and Cohen also will cover Medicare's Physician Quality Reporting Initiative and electronic prescribing incentive program. They'll outline the benefits of the programs and walk attendees through gauging their readiness to qualify, and the resources necessary to make the transitions. Session ELS4 is scheduled at 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 25. More information is available at
