This document summarizes the proposed rule published by The National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS),  that would implement certain provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act.

On March 4, 2019, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), published in the Federal Register a proposed rule that would implement certain provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act.

Also proposed are modifications to the 2015 Edition Health Information Technology certification criteria and to other aspects of the Program, intended to advance interoperability, enhance health IT certification, and reduce burden and costs. The deadline for submission of comments is Monday, May 3, 2019.
