The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services and ONC released the final rule for the Meaningful Use Stage 3 and 2015 rules. Participating eligible providers will be able to report a 90 day reporting period in 2015. The 90 day reporting period will be for all providers in 2015 and for new providers joining the program in 2016 and 2017. The attestation deadline is scheduled for February 29, 2016 with a chance of an extension. 

In addition to the 90 day reporting period, two objectives in Stage 2 have been changed:

Stage 2 Core 7(b) used to require providers to instruct more than 5% of their patients to view and download their clinical summaries during the reporting period. The new rule now only requires provider to have at least one patient to view and download their clinical summary. 

Stage 2 Core 17  required providers to receive a secure message from more than 5% of their patients during the reporting period. This objective has been changed to no longer requiring patients sending a secure message but to have the capability of secure messaging enabled during the reporting period.
