December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Section 1: Provider Enrollment and Responsibilities : 1.7 Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program : 1.7.1 Attesting to Meaningful Use: Required Documentation for Texas Medicaid EHR Incentive Program

Providers must maintain auditable records to support attestations made by eligible professionals (EPs) moving forward in the Texas Medicaid EHR Incentive Program from Adopt/Implement/Upgrade (AIU) to Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 1 and beyond.
To receive MU incentives, EPs must show that they are meaningfully using the certified EHR technology by reporting on MU and clinical quality measures.
The following are the required documents that must be uploaded into the Texas Medicaid EHR Incentive Program portal at the time of MU attestation:
Numerator / Denominator Measures (Core and Menu): For the numerator/denominator measures, providers must upload into the portal an EHR-generated summary MU report, if available, that shows the numerator and denominator for each measure reported. If some measures are not included in the summary report, providers must generate separate reports or other auditable documentation for those measures. For example, screenshots showing an MU dashboard with reported measures/values would also be acceptable. Providers must ensure that the report date matches the EHR reporting period and that the report data values are for the attesting provider only.
Measures that are reported with the numerator and denominator include:
Drug/drug and drug/allergy interaction checks enabled - Providers must include documentation, such as a screenshot or configuration page, that shows this functionality has been turned on at the time of attestation.
Clinical Decision Support (CDS) rule implemented - Providers must include documentation, such as a screenshot, that shows a CDS rule has been configured. For example, an upload of a screenshot from an EP’s EHR configuration panel showing a CDS rule has been implemented.
Public health registry tests - For immunization, electronic lab reporting (ELR) and syndromic surveillance, providers must include documentation, such as an email or letter, from the public health agency that acknowledges the test or ongoing submission. For immunization, the IMMTRAC ID number must also be provided.
Drug formulary checks: - Documentation is not required at the time of attestation; however, EPs should maintain an auditable record that demonstrates this measure was achieved.
