Posted on: 5/21/14

Late yesterday afternoon, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology released a proposed rule that would allow hospitals and eligible professionals multiple pathways to meet meaningful use in 2014, including using the 2011 Edition Certified Electronic Health Record Technology to meet the meaningful use requirements in place for 2013. CMS says that beginning in 2015, all eligible hospitals and professionals would be required to use the 2014 Edition CEHRT to report meaningful use. The rule also proposes beginning stage 3 meaningful use in fiscal year 2017. The agencies will accept comments on the rule for 60 days. For more, click here
