Today is the day… CMS launched the EHR Incentive Program Registration & Attestation System as announced. I just received the following email from Ethan W. Moore, Health Insurance Specialist – Health Information Technology/HITECH Act, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Office of Public Engagement, Partner Relations Group:
As of this morning, Monday April 18, the Attestation website has officially gone live: https://ehrincentives.cms.gov/hitech/login.action.
As promised, new materials are now available to help providers navigate the process of Attestation. The EHR Information Center will also provide Attestation assistance to the EHR provider community. The EHR Information Center is open from 7:30 am – 6:30 pm (Central Time) Monday through Friday, except federal holidays, at 1-888-734-6433 (primary number) or 888-734-6563 (TTY number). Questions may also be submitted at: http://questions.cms.hhs.gov/app/ask/p/21,26,1139
