Notice: System upgrades delay attestations

Due to required system upgrades you will be unable to submit your Meaningful Use Attestation for 2017 Program Years 2 - 6 until the portal reopens in early August. You can only submit for 2017 Meaningful Use Year 1 at this time. The deadline for Year 1 is February 28, 2018.

This is contrary to prior notifications you may have received, we apologize for the inconvenience.

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