Flex-IT Act reintroduced to shorten meaningful use, again
from By Scott E. Rupp
The Flexibility in Health IT Reporting (Flex-IT) Act of 2015, a reiteration of a bill introduced in Congress in 2014, has been proposed again this session. According to the statement released by the members of Congress who drafted the bill, H.R. 270 would ensure that healthcare providers receive the flexibility "they need to successfully comply with HHS's meaningful use program." In a nutshell, the Flex-IT Act allows providers the option to choose any three-month quarter for an EHR reporting period to qualify for meaningful use in 2015, as opposed to a full year, as is currently the case.
