Random Audits by OIG for Meaningful Use have begun!

A random sample of providers who have received incentive payments of achieving Meaningful Use have been sent a notice for a Meaningful Use Audit by the Office of Audit Services of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Though not all meaningful measures will be reviewed, one of the core measures, the Security Risk Analysis will definitely be one of them.

“Providers should have documentation for each of the measures such as measure calculation reports printed from the provider’s EHR system, security risk analysis reports, and dated screen prints that demonstrate that the provider met the measure during the meaningful use reporting period or otherwise by the applicable deadline.
When responding to the OIG audits, providers should be mindful that deficiencies identified for one physician in a physician group or one hospital within a multi-hospital system, may apply to the other physicians and hospitals using the same EHR system and/or implementing meaningful use in the same way. Thus, the incentive payments at risk in an audit may be greater than the payments to the particular provider being audited”
