CMS is proposing a 90-Day EHR reporting period in 2016 for all Eligible Professionals, Eligible Hospitals, and Critical Access Hospitals. The agency has stated that the change would further assist healthcare providers by increasing flexibility in the program. The EHR reporting period would be any continuous 90-day period between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016. 

Keep in mind this is a proposal. We recommend that you still prepare for a 365-day reporting period until the proposed rule becomes final.
