Timelines

CMS finalized a change to the timelines for MU in order to accommodate EPs, EHs and CAHs that could not fully implement 2014 CEHRT. The changes provide three options, applicable to the 2014 reporting year only: 1) Use 2011 Edition CEHRT and meet Stage 1, 2013 objectives; 2) Use a combination of 2011 and 2014 Edition CEHRT to meet Stage 1, 2013 objectives or Stage 2, 2014 objectives; 3) Use 2014 Edition CEHRT only for those scheduled to begin Stage 2.
