Did you know that there are 36 milestone dates to remember with the electronic health records meaningful use program between January 2014 and December 2016?

How about 22 milestones for the PQRS and IQR quality measurement programs during that same period? There also are five milestones for administrative simplification requirements between January 2014 and November 5, 2015. These milestones cover operating rules for electronic funds transfer and remittance advice, ICD-10 compliance, and deadlines for large and small health plans to obtain a health plan identifier.

Finally, there are six milestones for patient outcomes/payment reform programs between January 31, 2014 and January 1, 2016. These cover various aspects of the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative and the Value Based Payment Modifier/Physician Feedback Program.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has issued an “eHealth Programs Interactive Timeline,” a Web-based app to help providers keep track of what reporting period starts or ends when, and deadlines for registering to attest and attesting. The interactive app is available here.
