CMS announces final EHR meaningful use rule

CMS announces final EHR meaningful use rules

It's final. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and ONC have released final rules for the EHR Incentive Programs, which they say will ease reporting requirements for providers and also allow for 90-day reporting periods.

The final rules, as CMS and ONC officials announced, "make significant changes in current requirements." Chief among them are easing the reporting requirements for providers, said Patrick Conway, MD, of CMS, in a media call. The rules also allow for a 90-day reporting period for providers in 2015, and new providers in 2016 and 2017.

Clinical quality measures for both hospitals and providers will remain the same.
