Updates to meaningful use timeline - No delay to stage 2
from Kansas Foundation for Medical Care, Inc.
On Dec. 6, 2013, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services proposed a new timeline for the implementation of meaningful use for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. Under the revised timeline, stage 2 will be extended through 2016 and stage 3 will begin in 2017 for those providers that have completed at least two years in stage 2.
Additionally, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology proposed an approach for certification that allows ample time for developers to create and distribute certified EHR technology before stage 3 begins.
