CMS overhauled the EHR Incentive Program known as Meaningful Use (MU), and renamed it the Promoting Interoperability (PI) Programs. This includes significant changes to how CMS determines whether hospitals are meaningful users of EHR technology, with a new scoring methodology and updated measure requirements (e.g., some Stage 3 MU measures were removed and wholly new measures are introduced).
PI focuses on information exchange between providers and electronic access to health information for patients. Medicare hospitals must continue to satisfy PI requirements year-over-year in order to avoid hefty penalties.
