CMS data show path of least resistance to meaningful use cash in 2011

Effective May 21, 2012
Published May 21, 2012

Physicians who successfully attested to meaningful use in 2011 performed similarly on the mandatory “core” measures and often chose the same menu measures to meet the CMS requirement of 20 reported measures (15 core, five menu). Primary care practices were by far the specialty with the most attestations, making up 41% of attesting practices in 2011, and they differ from other specialties on measures reported, according to a Part B News analysis of 2011 CMS attestation data, the latest available. A total of 28,954 physicians attested under the Medicare program in 2011; another 15,060 have attested in 2012.
