Numerator: The number of prescriptions in the denominator that are generated, queried for a drug formulary and transmitted electronically using CEHRT.
Exclusions:
  • Any EP that writes fewer than 100 permissible prescriptions during the EHR reporting period.
  • Any EP that does not have a pharmacy within their organization and there are no pharmacies that accept electronic prescriptions within 10 miles of the EP's practice location at the start of the EHR reporting period.
Attestation: An EP must submit the numerators and denominators generated by the Medicaid Promoting Interoperability Dashboard.
Audit Documentation: We recommend that a copy of your Medicaid PI report is placed in your audit folder and retained for a minimum of 6 years after your attestation.  Your audit folder should provide necessary verification if you are selected for a CMS Incentive Program audit.
