CMS selects Figliozzi to audit EHR payments

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has awarded Figliozzi and Co., of Garden City, N.Y., a contract to audit payments and compliance with the agency’s EHR Incentive Program.

Figliozzi, a certified public accountant firm that specializes in auditing healthcare facilities for Medicare cost compliance, will also examine participating providers to assure that they are eligible Medicare and Medicare Advantage physicians and hospitals.

NOTE: Will be interesting if they audit compliance with Objective 14 for Eligible Hospitals which calls for HIPAA Risk Analysis.

Part of Meaningful use requires you to conduct a Risk Analysis and implement controls. Not sure they will look at this.
