Meaningful Use Delay?
On May 20, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
(CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for
Health Information Technology (ONC) issued a proposed
rule that may delay implementation of 2014 edition
Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT).
LA Healthcare Quality Forum. June 2014
Meaningful Use Delay?
“If it is finalized, it could mean that some EPs will be able to
attest to Meaningful Use this year using 2011 CEHRT or a
mix of 2011 and 2014 technology,” she said. “It may also
allow some EPs to attest this year by meeting the 2013 or
2014 Stage 1 measures even if those providers were
scheduled to start Stage 2 this year.”
Nadine Robin, Health IT Program Manager for the Louisiana Health Information
Technology (LHIT) Resource Center.
Meaningful Use Delay?
• The proposal, if approved, would be valid only for the
2014 reporting year. In 2015, all EPs will still be required
to report using the 2014 Edition CERHT.

For 2014 only
“For Medicaid providers only eligible to receive Medicaid
EHR incentives, the 3-month reporting period is not
fixed, where providers do not have the same alignment
needs.”
For 2014 only
For Medicare providers, this 3-month reporting period is
fixed to the quarter of either the fiscal (for eligible
hospitals and CAHs) or calendar (for EPs) year in order to
align with existing CMS quality measurement programs,
such as the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)
and Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR).
