CMS to Fix Meaningful Use Attestation System Issue on February 21

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced today that the system error preventing EHR Incentive Program participants from selecting the exclusion from measure 1 of objective 8, “patient electronic access,” during attestation will be corrected on February 21. Therefore, any participants who were planning on using the “neither orders nor creates” exclusion from both measures of objective 8 should wait until February 22 or later before using the online attestation system to demonstrate CY 2015 compliance with Meaningful Use (MU).

Note that CMS also recently delayed the MU attestation deadline for CY 2015 reporting periods until 11:59PM (Eastern) on March 11.
