Official Publication of MU, Cert Rules
Official publication of CMS’s notice of proposed rulemaking defining the “meaningful use” of EHRs and describing the provisions governing the incentive programs appeared today in the Federal Register. This is a considerably shortened version from the prepublication version that was released December 30 (see story), though the content of the proposal itself has not changed.
With its publication today, the 60-day public comment period begins. All comments are due to CMS by 5 p.m. on March 15.
ONC also officially published its interim final rule describing related requirements and technical specifications for EHR technology today. Again, this is an abbreviated version, though the contents of the rule itself have not changed.
Comments to ONC are also due by 5 p.m. on March 15.
