March 19, 2012


Many AAN members are still perplexed by the requirements and deadlines for the incentive programs offered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for electronic prescribing, using electronic health records (EHR), and reporting on quality of care measurements.

To help neurologists better understand the incentives, penalties, and timelines involved in these programs, the Academy is providing AAN members with a free Practice Management Webinar "Incentive Programs and Penalties: What Do They Mean for My Practice?"

  • This webinar is offered online on Thursday, April 12, at 12:00 p.m. ET.
  • The deadline to register is Tuesday, April 10.
  • It is free for AAN members and $99 for nonmembers.
