Jim Tate is known as the most experienced authority on the CMS Meaningful Use (MU) mock audit, audit and appeal process. His unique combination of skills has brought successful outcomes to hospitals at risk of having their CMS EHR incentives recouped. He led the first appeal challenge in the nation for a client hospital that had received a negative audit determination. That appeal was decided in favor of the hospital. He has also been successful in leading the effort to reverse a failed appeal, even after the hospital had received notification of the failure with the statement, “This decision is final and not subject to further appeal”. That “final” decision was reversed in less than a week.
Jim understands the deep nuances of “meaningful use” and “certified technology”. He has worked with over 200 EHR vendors on their certification projects, authored numerous articles on MU, and became a Subject Matter Expert to the federally funded Regional Extension Centers for the adoption and implementation of electronic health records.
“Hospitals across New York State are eager to learn more about Meaningful Use Audits. Jim Tate shared his expertise with about 100 Healthcare Association of New York State’s (HANYS’) member representatives in an interactive web cast explaining the ins and outs of the audit and appeals processes, providing valuable and practical advice on how to successfully make it through an MU Audit”
