Earlier this year, CMS Chief Andy Slavitt announced that in 2016 MACRA would replace Meaningful Use (MU) as it has existed in the past. While this may be true, many of the current requirements for MU attestation will remain in place. For example, as the law is currently written, 25 percent of the scoring for MACRA’s Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) will continue to be based on an EP’s Meaningful Use participation for the year. Also, the CMS is still required by law to continue measuring the meaningful use of ONC Certified Health Information Technology under the existing standard set.
