Stage 2 meaningful use to show ’deference’ to panel proposals

Government Health IT, June 29, 2011
The rule that details the requirements for stage 2 of meaningful use will "look a lot like" the measures that the Health IT Policy Committee recently endorsed, said Farzad Mostashari, MD, the national health IT coordinator. The measures focus on patient-centered, safe and coordinated healthcare, he added. The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services anticipate releasing their proposed rules on meaningful use of electronic health records and standards and certification criteria by the end of the year or early 2012, accepting public comments about it, and finalizing it next summer.
