CMS to Delay Stage 3 Meaningful Use Requirements

CMS will delay making rules on stage 3 meaningful use of electronic health records until next year while it examines how the existing requirements are rolling out, CMS Acting Administrator Marilyn Tavenner said at the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society Annual Conference in New Orleans, March 3-7, 2013, according to an AHA News Now report.

Ms. Tavenner also announced that the ICD-10 implementation deadline of Oct.1, 2014, will stand firm.

In addition, CMS and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has issued a notice asking for input on potential policy and program changes to accelerate electronic health information interoperability, according to the report.
