Attestation portal closing for updates: We are closing the attestation portal and extending our 2018 deadline due to recent CMS changes to the Final Rule. These limited changes won't be available until early summer. You will not be able to attest for 2018 at this time. Once the changes have been updated in the EHR attestation application, we will send a notification that the portal is open and you can attest.

We provide monthly newsletters to keep you up-to-date on the EHR program.
