The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will conduct webinars on Stage 2 of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program and an updated 1500 Claim Form in September.
The one-hour EHR webinar begins at noon CDT on Wednesday, Sept. 11. It will review the Stage 2 requirements that begin in 2014.

Use "Sept. 11 EHR Webinar" in the subject line of your message.
The 1500 Claim Form webinar runs from 2 to 3 pm CDT on Tuesday, Sept. 17. CMS says changes to the form include making it meet the requirements of the ICD-10 coding system you must begin using Oct. 1, 2014. The first part of this webinar will review the changes to the form, explain the transition timeline, and outline the steps practices need to take now. The second half will be a review of one practice management vendor's work to implement the changes to the form.
