The 2014 Edition Release 2 EHR Certification Criteria (2014 Edition Release 2) final rule adopted ten optional 2014 Edition EHR certification criteria and two revised 2014 Edition EHR certification criteria that provide flexibility, clarity, and enhance health information exchange. The final rule also made a few improvements to the ONC Health IT (HIT) Certification Program and removed outdated regulation text from the Code of Federal Regulations.
2014 Edition Release 2 Electronic Health Record (EHR) Certification Criteria and the ONC HIT Certification Program; Regulatory Flexibilities, Improvements, and Enhanced Health Information Exchange Final Rule – September, 11 2014.
Proposed Voluntary Edition
We now refer to the previous “Voluntary 2015 Edition Electronic Health Record Certification Criteria; Interoperability Updates and Regulatory Improvements” proposed rule as the “Proposed Voluntary Edition” proposed rule. This prevents confusion with the new naming convention approach for editions of certification criteria as discussed in more detail in the 2014 Edition Release 2 final rule.
