Wolf in sheeps clothing??
CMS is extending the time for MU attestations under Stage 2, and allowing vendors more time to test out under Stage 2 either using 2014 test criteria or a new 2015 criteria set (far from ready for prime time).
For vendors it's a wolf in sheep's clothing. In my experience having worked through many 2014 tests with clients - the criteria under 2014 became considerably more complex and extensive as each month passed, test criteria were revised almost on a monthly basis. For example the test for Safety Enhanced Design (170.114g3) started out requesting a simple description of your design/development process, to now submitting detailed test scenarios per NISTIR 7742 standards. The DVT test now requires WCAG 2.0 evaluations, but did not in the early going. This growing complexity is one reason why far less vendors have passed 2014 than 2011. From a vendor perspective, net result is if you wait for the new set of 2015 test criteria those tests will be even more difficult. My advice, don't wait too long. Remember in the healthcare world regulations only grow...never shrink!
