Stage 2

FAQ 6. My EHR upgraded to 2014 in August, and I am now going for Stage 2. Do I attest for the quarter ending 9/30? Which option would be least restrictive? How do you denote which quarter you chose, or does the data itself indicate this?

To meet the Stage 2 requirement, you would be able to use the third- or fourth-quarter time frame. If you report the quarter when the update took place, the EHR will need to have a combined 2011 and 2014 certification number from the ONC. If you are using a vendor that is not yet certified for 2014, you may attest using the 2013 criteria and the 2011 ONC certification number.

FAQ 7. We attested Stage 1 in 2012 (90 days) and 2013 (1 year), but our EMR is not Stage 2-certified yet. Can we attest Stage 1 criteria 2013 for 2014?

If you are using a vendor that is not yet certified for 2014, you may attest using the 2013 criteria and the 2011 ONC certification number.
