After months of speculation, the final rules for Meaningful Use Stage 2 and the Standards and Certification Criteria have been released.

On Friday, August 24, from 1 pm to 2:30 pm EDT, the National eHealth Collaborative (NeHC), a nonprofit public-private organization that facilitates health information exhange, will host experts on both of these rules for a single Webinar to walk through the intricacies and answer questions on each rule.

First, NeHC will be joined by Rob Anthony from CMS’s Office of E-Health Standards and Services to give an overview of the final rule and answer attendee questions. He 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 once again 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. He will discuss the revised definition for Certified EHR Technology, identify changes from the proposed rule, and give his insight into the next steps.

If you cannot attend Friday’s program, NeHC will be repeating this program the week of August 27.
