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.
