HFS has incorporated the ability to electronically sign an MCR into the ECR Export process. As CMS updates the form sets and HFS is approved users will be offered this ability in their software. Users are given the option to sign the MCR themselves (if they meet the CMS criteria of CFO or Administrator) or they can give contact information for the signer and the HFS SaFE site will facilitate the signing.

  • It’s easy to use and documented for the preparer and signer at every step.
  • The HFS shows the complete CMS certification to the statement along with the ability to view the report and any other information the preparer adds to the "signing package".
  • If the signer is not an HFS user they are NOT required to register with our system.
