Attestation Requirements for Clinical Decision Support

Attestation Requirements:


Eligible physicians (EPs) or other eligible professionals must attest YES to having implemented one clinical decision support rule for the length of the reporting period to meet the measure.


Additional Information: 

  • CMS will not issue additional guidance on the selection of appropriate clinical decision support rules for Stage 1 Meaningful Use. This determination is best left to the EP taking into account their workflow, patient population, and quality improvement efforts.
  • Drug-drug and drug-allergy interaction alerts cannot be used to meet the meaningful use objective for implementing one clinical decision support rule. EPs must implement one clinical decision support rule in addition to drug-drug and drug-allergy interaction checks.
