2015 edition EHR criteria released

Article

This is the first time ONC has proposed an edition of certification criteria separate from Meaningful Use regulations.

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has issued proposals for the 2015 edition of electronic health record (EHR) certification criteria.

This is the first time ONC has proposed an edition of certification criteria separate from meaningful use regulations. Comments on the proposal will be accepted through April, and the final rule is expected in summer.

“The proposed 2015 Edition EHR certification criteria reflect ONC’s commitment to incrementally improving interoperability and efficiently responding to stakeholder feedback,” said Karen DeSalvo, MD, MPH, national coordinator for health IT.

Compliance with the 2015 edition would be voluntary. EHR developers that have certified EHR technology to the 2014 edition would not need to recertify to the 2015 Edition for customers to participate in meaningful use incentive programs. Healthcare providers would not need to upgrade to 2015 Edition software to attest to Meaningful Use.
