Upcoming Meaningful Use Hardship Exception Deadline
Summer’s here, and the July 4 holiday weekend is around the corner. Before packing your bags or lighting up the grill, take a moment to review the meaningful use hardship exception guidelines. The deadline to apply for a hardship exception and avoid a 2017 payment adjustment is July 1 at 11:59 pm ET.
A hardship exception could exempt you from Medicare payment penalties in 2017 if you failed to achieve meaningful use in 2015 and you meet certain criteria.

GPRO Registration Deadline is June 30
Group practices with two or more providers that bill under a single tax identification number (TIN) may choose to report their 2016 PQRS measures as a group. To qualify for this option, the group practice must register for GPRO by June 30.
Individual providers who bill under their own EIN and group practices that don’t register for GPRO should continue claims-based reporting. If reporting individually, at least 50% of providers in a group practice must successfully participate in PQRS for all providers in the group to avoid a negative Medicare payment adjustment in 2018.

4 Benefits of Using the App vs. Website on an iPad
When you want to stay up-to-date on the latest news, do you tap the CNN app or do you go to the CNN website on your iPad? If you’re going out to dinner and are wondering if you’ll need a jacket, do you open the weather app or do you go to weather.com?
While you’ll get the same information either way, whether you use an app or a website on the iPad can make a huge difference. That’s because on an iPad, apps outperform a website every time.
