The Bookmarked Final Rules

Robin Raiford of Allscripts has completed the bookmarking of all the healthcare IT final rules:

CMS final rule – EHR incentive program (14 Megabytes)
ONC final rule – Standards Stage One (500K)
ONC final rule – Permanent Certification Program (500K)

Also, here’s the detail of the numerators and denominators of the meaningful use metrics with thresholds.

I’m sure these will help many people inside and outside of government.

Thanks Robin!
