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