The final rules for Meaningful Use Stage 2 and the Standards and Certification Criteria were released on August 23. On August 30, NeHC will host experts on both of these rules to describe the intricacies and answer questions on each rule. NeHC will be joined by Travis Broome from CMS�s Office of E-Health Standards and Services to give an overview of the final rule and answer questions. Travis will also discuss the feedback that was incorporated into the final rule and what this means for those ready to attest for both Stage 1 and Stage 2. Then, NeHC will welcome Steve Posnack, Director of the Federal Policy Division at the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) for an in-depth look at the 2014 Edition Standards and Certification Criteria final rule.
