Hardship Exceptions for Insufficient Internet Connectivity
Many meaningful use objectives, such as Summary of Care and Electronic Prescribing, require Internet connectivity to send health information to patients, pharmacies, registries, and laboratories. CMS has determined that lack of sufficient Internet connectivity renders compliance with these meaningful use requirements a hardship.
If eligible professionals can demonstrate insufficient Internet connectivity, they can apply for a hardship exception for future payment adjustments. To qualify for the exception, they must demonstrate that the Internet connectivity is insufficient to comply with the meaningful use objectives, and that there are significant barriers—like high cost— to obtaining a sufficient infrastructure.
