Just a quick reminder that under the final rule, which was released in early October of this year, attestation timeframes were adjusted to align with the full calendar year. Starting in 2016, both eligible professionals (EPs) and eligible hospitals (EHs) will need to attest to Stage 2 Meaningful Use between January 1 and December 31 of 2016.
However, all first-time Stage 2 participants, as well as those attesting for 2015, will only need to attest to a 90-day timeframe. These 90 days must be consecutive and occur between January 1 and December 31 of 2016.
