ACR: Five things radiologists should know about Stage 3 Meaningful Use Rule

By Staff News Brief

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) have released the final rule to implement Stage 3 Meaningful Use (MU) participation requirements as well as changes to the existing MU requirements. Michael Peters, the American College of Radiology’s director of regulatory and legislative affairs, has analyzed the requirements and has prepared a synopsis of five things that radiologists should know:

  • Radiologists will continue to avoid payment adjustments as before;
  • Stage 3 MU will be far less burdensome for participating radiologists than any previous stage;
  • Modified Stage 2 in 2015, 2016, and 2017 is an improvement over the previous Stage 1 and Stage 2 requirements, but not as flexible as Stage 3 for radiologists;
  • The “imaging results access” objective was eliminated from MU; and,
  • Pay close attention to next year’s MIPS rulemaking.
