More Meaningful Use Stage 2 Resources

Two important resources you can use as you plan for MU Stage 2 certification and attestation.

1.  The Advisory Board has prepared a poster, available to the public, comparing meaningful use Stage 1 with the Stage 2 final rule, including objectives, measures, numerators, denominators, exclusions, as well as certification criteria and standards.

2.  ONC has released the first wave of certification test procedures .

All Test Procedures will undergo public review and comment before being finalized and approved by ONC for use in testing and certification.

Comments and suggestions should be submitted to All submissions should include "Test Procedure" in the subject line.

The HIT Standards Committee's Implementation Workgroup is reviewing these in detail and I'm hopeful that they'll be rigorously tested in real world settings before the procedures are finalized.

Hello Dr.Halamka(et al)- Just to be clear (because I was confused on the conflicting dates of 2013/2014 for MU Stage2 and ICD-10), I called CMS and here is the point of fact: the dates you list are accurate. The BIG clarification to folks is ICD-10 for MU Stage 2 is NOT required until Oct.1, 2014 for CMS or MU 2. Thanks!
