The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a notice of proposed rule making
in May that would grant flexibility to physicians and hospitals experiencing difficulties fully implementing the 2014 edition certified EHR technology to attest this year. CMS has created an interactive decision tool
that guides providers through potential participation options for 2014. Physicians answer a few questions about their current stage of meaningful use and edition of EHR certification, and the tool displays the corresponding options proposed in the rule making notice.
