On January 13, 2010, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Office of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology published two much-anticipated and coordinated sets of regulations. These regulations establish the requirements for eligible providers to earn Medicare and Medicaid electronic health record (EHR) incentives. The Department of Health and Human Services will accept comments on these regulations through March 15, 2010. Eligible hospitals and professionals, vendors, would-be certifying bodies and others interested in or affected by the regulations should thus consider submitting comments to HHS, with a particular emphasis on requesting the “grandfathering” of existing, successful EHR technology.
