Epic Ahead of the Curve on Stage 3 Certifications
More MU just around the corner
As the third and final stage of Meaningful Use approaches, vendors and providers are gearing up to meet a new set of regulatory requirements. Fewer Stage 3 EHR products have begun certification through ONC this year than the two previous stages, although it’s expected that many will begin to seek certification in early 2017. Stage 3 is set to take effect in 2018, but providers can meet the measures as early as 2017 if they’re ready.
Epic’s 2016 public health reporting modules were among the first to achieve the final stage certifications.
