Deadline today for meaningful use comments

A proposed rule issued by CMS outlined proposed provisions governing the EHR incentive programs, including defining the central concept of “meaningful use” of EHR technology. The Interim Final Rule issued by ONC set initial standards, implementation specifications and certification criteria for EHR technology.
