On August 8, 2014, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) received the final rule addressing the meaningful use stage timeline, the definition of certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT), and the requirements for the reporting of clinical quality measures for 2014. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) published the proposed rule in the May 23, 2014 Federal Register.
The proposed rule would allow providers to use the 2011 Edition CEHRT, the 2014 Edition or a combination of 2011 and 2014 Editions to demonstrate meaningful use for 2014.
OMB has 90 days to complete its review. The final regulations will be released soon thereafter.
