Comment Deadline Extended for HIT Certification RFI
Comments due Feb. 16

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), in conjunction with the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), has extended the comment period for its request for information about the certification of health information technology (HIT). Comments, which were previously due Feb. 1, are now due Feb. 16.

CMS and ONC request feedback on how often to require recertification, the number of electronic clinical quality measures a certified HIT module should be required to certify to, and ways to improve testing of the modules. CHA has been working with members to develop comments and welcomes additional input ahead of the new comment deadline. Members who are interested in sharing their input should contact Debby Rogers at
