On January 29, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) announced its plan to propose changes to the Electronic Health Record Incentive Program (“EHR Incentive Program”). According to CMS, the rule will address provider concerns and reflect developments in the industry since the initial inception of the program. Specific proposed changes include, switching the reporting period from the fiscal year to the calendar year, and shortening the reporting period from one year to ninety days. CMS will release the proposed rule this spring.
