CMS starts auditing recipients of meaningful use bonuses

The audits will be carried out by Figliozzi and Co., an accounting firm based in Garden City, N.Y. The notification comes in the form of a letter. If you receive the letter you have two weeks to provide the following three pieces of information: (1) You are using a certified EHR package (2) Documentation proving the core measures were met and (3) Supporting documentation proving that the menu measures were met. Hospitals will also be asked for documentation supporting the method used to report emergency department admissions

Since these are all needed to attest in the first place they should not be a problem for most, but if you have any questions you should contact your EMR vendor.
