Certification and the CMA (AAMA) Credential, On the Job, Scope of Practice

Presentation With Robert Anthony of CMS

On September 29th, I gave a joint presentation with Robert Anthony, deputy director of the Health Information Technology Initiatives Group of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to the House of Delegates at the AAMA 57th Annual Conference in Atlanta. The presentation dealt with the CMS rule for meaningful use order entry. Deputy Director Anthony affirmed some key points I had presented in previous articles and speeches, and provided an overview of the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Programs. He was also kind enough to provide his presentation for your viewing. His presentation and mine are available below, as well as a summary of the key points, as written for the upcoming November/December 2013 issue of CMA Today.
