On May 20th, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) which would allow participating providers of the EHR Incentive Program to use 2011 Editions of Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT) for 2014.
This proposed rule grants flexibility to providers who are experiencing difficulties fully implementing 2014 Edition CEHRT to attest this year. If passed, Providers would be able to use EHRs certified under the 2011 Edition, a combination of the 2011 and 2014 Editions, or the 2014 Edition.
NPRM Rule also proposes to extend Stage 2 of the EHR Incentive Programs through 2016.
Please visit the CMS website for more information or read the press release about the NPRM.
