Resources available on Standards and Certification NPRM; check out the public comment template

On March 7, 2012, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that proposed revisions to the initial set of standards, implementation specifications, and certification criteria adopted in a 2010 final rule. The 2014 Edition EHR certification criteria were jointly proposed with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) NPRM on the EHR Incentive Programs – which provides incentive payments to eligible health care providers that adopt Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT) and susequently demonstrate "meaningful use."

Public comments will be accepted through Monday, May 7, 2012. ONC will take into consideration all timely public comments as it develops a final rule, which we anticipate publishing this summer. We encourage commenters to submit comments electronically at To enhance public participation in the rulemaking process, ONC has made available on its website a copy of the rule in Microsoft Word format and is piloting a "Public Comment Template" meant to provide the public with a simple and organized way to submit comments.

Additionally, several educational resources are now available to illustrate the relationship of the 2014 edition certification criteria to the policy proposals in the ONC proposed rule. Visit to learn more.
