ONC Health IT Certification Program Updates

Beginning January 1, 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will require that Part D ePrescribing be conducted using solely the NCPDP SCRIPT Standard Version 2017071. As a result, developers of 2015 Edition certified Health IT Modules certified to the ePrescribing criterion adopted at 45 CFR 170.315(b)(3) are permitted to update their products to use the NCPDP SCRIPT Standard Version 2017071 to meet CMS’ Part D ePrescribing compliance requirements.
