The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has issued an interim final rule making changes to the Stage 2 electronic health records meaningful use program, which already had been finalized.

The changes involve replacing some standards with more recent versions, and changing or exempting some meaningful use measures to provide more flexibility. CMS also gives notice via the rule that it intends to issue technical corrections to electronic specifications for clinical quality measures on or around Dec. 21, 2012. The rule, with a 30-day comment period, is available here with publication Dec. 7 in the Federal Register.
