New Proposed Meaningful Use Recommendations

On January 12, the Health Information Technology Policy Committee published its proposed Stage 2 and 3 Meaningful Use recommendations for public comment.  The comment period ends Feb. 25 and the Health IT Policy Committee will consider all of the comments in making its final recommendations this summer to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at HHS.  It’s helpful to have at least some general direction where the MU requirements may be headed after 2012.  The link below has a good summary.  http://geekdoctor.blogspot.com/2011/01/proposed-stage-2-and-3-meaningful-use.html
