The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has corrected the Stage 2 meaningful use Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.
The document corrects technical errors and typographical errors in the proposed rule which appeared March 7 in the Federal Register .
As typos go, most are pretty uninteresting. However, CMS provided some crucial details omitted in the previous draft, including:
- "On page 13707, in our discussion regarding eligible professionals who practice in multiple locations, we inadvertently omitted the timeframe by which the determination is made on whether a practice/location is equipped with Certified EHR Technology.
- "On page 13711, in our solicitation of comments regarding the variations among facility types for an e-prescribing measure, we inadvertently stated an erroneous threshold percentage.
- "On pages 13760 through 13763, in Table 9, we incorrectly listed some of the measure stewards and their respective contact information."
The corrected draft was published in the Federal Register on April 18.
