How do you prepare for a Meaningful Use Audit?

Read the 7 tips below:
(1) Assume you will be audited and be prepared for it. Keep records of the registration/attestation processes and documentation for at least six years
(2) Respond promptly after receiving an audit letter
(3) Ensure that the work of MU is being done, especially where practice managers are supposed to take care of the paperwork
(4) Auditors are looking for discrepancies between documentation submitted during the attestation process and what was actually done
(5) Get documentation from your electronic health record (EHR) vendor to satisfy certification requirements
(6) Print dated screen shots from the EHR showing that functionality was turned on during the reporting period
(7) A Security Risk Assessment needs to address any change made in the practice or adoption of new technology
