View Comments (0)Print ArticleEmail Article

CMS hired Figliozzi & Company of Garden City, N.Y., to perform the audits of providers who have attested to having achieved meaningful use of an EHR under the programs created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. 

If you are selected for an audit, you will receive a letter from Figliozzi & Company with the CMS logo on the letterhead, according to the CMS website. Audit guidelines are posted online here.

A newsletter posted by the law firm Ober-Kaler reports that audited entities so far have been asked to produce:

• a copy of their certification from the HHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology for the technology they used to meet program requirements

• documentation to support the method (observation services or all emergency department visits) they chose to report emergency department admissions

• supporting documentation with regard to their completion of the attestation module responses as to core set objectives and measures (i.e., a report from your EHR system that ties to your attestation)

• supporting documentation with regard to their completion of the attestation module responses as to "menu set" or voluntary, objectives and measures (i.e., a report from your EHR system that ties to your attestation).

The audits are not, at this time, requesting identifiable or detailed patient records.
