HIE Organizations Supporting Meaningful Use Stage 2 Goals

Providers receiving EHR incentive payments under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) EHR Incentive Payment Programs (Medicare and Medicaid) may be subject to audits up to 6 years following attestation, and may be given as little as 2 weeks to submit audit documentation.  HIE organizations (HIOs) can provide support for this process through many of the services they offer to their stakeholders, but every HIO is progressing at its own pace and focused on the needs of its particular stakeholder group.

This survey, distributed to both public and private HIE organizations across the US, asked which Meaningful Use-related services are currently offered to participating stakeholders.  Results illustrate the wide range of services offered by different HIOs, the areas where service offerings are more well-established, and those that are in need of development in order to support stakeholders during an audit process.
