UPDATE – NEW FLEXIBILITY IN THE 2014 EHR TIMELINE

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services finalized its modifications to Stage 2 of the electronic health records incentive program known as Meaningful Use. Providers will be able to use technology certified to 2011 standards to meet Stage 2 requirements this year only. Starting next year, only EHRs certified to 2014 standards* will be acceptable.  Read more, from cms.gov, here.

*Medicfusion is scheduled to be tested for 2014 Edition Certification this fall.

IMPLEMENT EHR BY OCTOBER 1 TO STILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR $24,000!

START Attestation by this date. If you are in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, you must demonstrate meaningful use on a 2014 Edition Certified EHR over any consecutive 90-day reporting period, with October 1, 2014 being the last day to fit 90-days in for 2014.
