​​​​​​​Does ONC anticipate 360x becoming federally required

The Shall use XDM needs to be reduced to May. That will be consistent with MU2015 requirements to send/receive a single document and use of XDR. Sending a single document is patient based workflow facilitating patient matching and meeting the workflow requirements when sending direct, it lowers the bar for adoption.  

Does ONC anticipate use of 360x becoming federally required?
