Recently CMS modified the 2015 attestation requirements, reducing the measures and timeframe for attestation. These changes will make it easier for you to attest for the 2015 reporting period, and here is the best part…Your MicroMD software is already equipped to allow you to attest under the reduced requirements on versions 9.0 and greater. I want to ensure that you are aware of these changes and can take advantage of the easier parameters. We want our customers to realize great success with Meaningful Use so if you are attesting, please read this article from beginning to end so we can help you take advantage of these changes:
