Meaningful Use stage 2 needs more time, CHIME says

InformationWeek, May 7, 2013
The College of Health Information Management Executives (CHIME) has proposed a one-year extension of Meaningful Use stage 2 to "maximize the opportunity of program success." According to the organization of healthcare CIOs, an additional 12 months to meet the stage 2 requirements "will give providers the opportunity to optimize their EHR technology and achieve the benefits of stage 1 and stage 2; it will give vendors the time needed to prepare, develop and deliver needed technology to correspond with Stage 3; and it will give policy makers time to assess and evaluate programmatic trends needed to craft thoughtful Stage 3 rules."
