The ePrescribing deadline is upon us - but CMS has now issued a proposed rule that may provide more flexibility for providers.  That's the good news.  The bad news is that implementation date for the features in the proposed rule is well after the June 30 deadline.  A CMS national provider call focused on this issue is scheduled for June 21 - be sure to register by June 20.  Information is provided below.

Another important event that is coming up is the 1/1/12 deadline for version 5010 compliance.  If you haven't started working with your vendors on this, it is time.  See the article below for links to more information on the CMS website.
