CMS Spotlight: 2015 Edition CEHRT Requirements for 2019

Beginning this year, all Promoting Interoperability Programs participants must use 2015 Edition certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT) when attesting to the Medicaid Incentive Program and to avoid a downward Medicare payment adjustment.

In addition to using the 2015 Edition CEHRT, participants must attest to certain statements to demonstrate that they have not knowingly and willfully taken action to limit or restrict the compatibility or interoperability of their CEHRT. These statements are referred to as the “prevention of information blocking attestation.
