Do ambulatory surgery centers need health IT certification?

from EHR Intelligence

Currently, ambulatory surgery centers do not have a health IT certification process for their EHR systems. Since this is the case, healthcare providers who treat patients in ASCs may not be meeting meaningful use requirements. These providers could potentially receive a payment penalty from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services if a large enough portion of their patient base received services at ASCs. The Electronic Health Fairness Act, however, was formed to prevent the payment penalties associated with ASC services. Many physician specialists perform routine procedures at ASCs for more cost-effective solutions, but the lack of health IT certification from CMS has proved a severe problem. more
