A Meaningful Use/Certification Crosswalk

Thank you to Steve Posnack and Mike Lipinski at ONC for producing a very valuable crosswalk between the CMS Meaningful Use Rule and the ONC Certification rule.  This is not an official document and it is open for discussion.

This summary document enumerates the relationship of the proposed 2015 Edition certification criteria in three general categories:
1)      ONC’s certification program requirements (i.e., criteria a product would also need to meet to get issued a certification);
2)      the criteria proposed by CMS as applicable to EHR Incentive Programs and criteria to meet certain statutory requirements;
3)      “available” certification criteria that are neither conditions of product certification nor referenced by CMS for the EHR Incentive Programs, but could be referenced by other programs/leveraged by others if they were finalized.
