Day One for EHR Bonuses
January 3rd, 2011
Today is the first day providers may sign up for bonuses available for the meaningful use of EHR.
The final regs were published today about requirements to qualify for incentive bonsues for EHR. The 277 page document basically says stop gap measures will continue through 2011.
The rule describes the permanent certification program for electronic health records (EHR), and how organizations become authorized to test and certify EHR technology.
ONC plans to replace the temporary program currently in effect with the permanent version January 1, 2012, but it also say it will delay the date if necessary.
