Transition document

How is anyone handling this outpatient transition document that CMS
required at the beginning of the year? We don't have a document that
lists all the tests and procedures a patient had - certainly not ready
to hand it to the patient at the time of discharge.



Please tell me it's a misunderstanding! I've pulled up the regs - guess
I'll start reading all 1500 pages. Please feel free to stop me.

    Are you talking about the meaningful use criteria, what's effective October 1, 2011, that is all patients not just outpatients?


    Meaningful Use states:
    "Provide patients with an electronic copy of their health information (including diagnostic test results, problem list, medication lists, medication allergies, discharge summary, procedures) upon request."


    Meaningful Use states:
    "Provide patients with an electronic copy of their discharge instructions at time of discharge, upon request."

    No - actually, I will use the CCD to meet this requirement but our MU
    CCD is not ready yet. This is a core measure component.
