The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed a ruling for Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 2.

Stage 1 lays the foundation for adoption of Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology and has encouraged providers to begin using their EHRs in a way that supports the goals of MU Stage 2.

Stage 2 aims to leverage the foundation established in Stage 1 to further support the fundamental goals of MU Stage 2.

The goals of MU Stage 2 are to:

  1. Improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities
  2. Engage patients and families in their healthcare Improve care coordination Improve population and public health
  3. Ensure adequate privacy and security protections for personal health information

Arcadia has an interest in providing comments for the MU Stage 2 proposed rule to support the interests of our clients and because Arcadia’s mission aligns with the vision of MU.
