ACOM Health's RAPID DOC v8 attains 2014 Edition Certification for 2014 Meaningful Use. Medicare's Rule Change expected to delay Stage 2 Meaningful Use until 2015...
ACOM Health is excited to announce RAPID Doc version 8.0 has officially attained 2014 Edition (Stage 1 and Stage 2) Modular Ambulatory EHR Certification, as noted on the ONC CHP website.
We will announce the upgrade schedule for existing RAPID software customers after an impending Medicare Rule Change announcement (42 CFR 495). Medicare is expected to announce a delay in the Stage 2 Meaningful Use program until 2015; which will permit Providers to attest (to Stage 1) in 2014 using their existing 2011 Certified EHR software. The rule change has tremendous positive implications for Providers who will be able to:
- Attest in 2014 with your existing RAPID Doc v7 software and only for a 90 day meaningful use period.
- Upgrade to RAPID Doc v8 in the fourth quarter of 2014, after completing your 2014 attestation.
- Go live with the RAPID Doc v8 software no later than January 1, 2015.
Expect more information as soon as Medicare has announced the Rule Change.
