This came from the nice folks at ONC this morning:
On March 25, 2010 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. EDT, The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), will present a webinar on the recently released Certification Programs for HIT Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). Public comments on the NPRM are now being accepted. The temporary certification program’s comment period ends April 9 and the permanent certification program’s comment period ends May 10. Because this NPRM is currently in the comment period phase, this webinar will be solely informational and seeks to help listeners better understand the proposals included in the NPRM.
Eligible professionals and eligible hospitals who seek to qualify for incentive payments under the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs are required by statute to use Certified EHR Technology. This webinar will discuss the proposals included in the NPRM that would enable eligible professionals and eligible hospitals to adopt health IT that meets the definition of Certified EHR Technology.
