“CMS has released a proposed rule that would change reporting requirements for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program to a 90-day period instead of the current one-year reporting period.
“The proposed rule seeks to better align current measures of meaningful use stage 1 and stage 2 with the proposed meaningful use stage 3 requirements. It also aims to reduce the burden and duplication of reporting requirements.
“CMS proposes to align reporting requirements for the next two years with those proposed for stage 3. This means reporting periods would follow the calendar year for 2015 and 2016 instead of the fiscal year, which is how reports are currently submitted.”
