Health IT stakeholders find MU goals aggressive
A poll that gauged the views of 468 health IT stakeholders shows that they view the proposed Stage Two and Three meaningful use objectives and measures as too aggressive when considering the work to be done, the targets to be met, and the timelines in which to achieve the stated goals. The survey was sponsored by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology, and was conducted to coincide with the Meaningful Use Workgroup of the Health IT Policy Committee's request for public comment on their proposed Stage Two and Three meaningful use objectives and measures. Survey participants were made up of providers (36%), EHR vendors (29%), and others (29%), and the results were summarized in a blog post by CCHIT chair Karen Bell.
