On February 11, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) extended the attestation deadline for health-care providers in the Electronic Health Records (EHR) Meaningful Use program.  Originally, providers were required to attest that they met the requirements of the Meaningful Use Program by next Monday, February 29, 2016.  That deadline has been extended by 2 weeks, and the new attestation deadline is now March 11, 2016.
