Meaningful Use Overview Policy Vision & Goals* Vision Enable significant and measurable improvements in population health through a transformed health care delivery system.

Meaningful Use Overview Regulatory Definition In HITECH, Congress specified three types of requirements for meaningful use: 1.use of certified EHR technology in a meaningful manner (e.g. Electronic Prescribing); 2.that the certified EHR technology is connected in a manner that provides for the electronic exchange of health information to improve the quality of care; and 3.that, in using certified EHR technology, the provider submits to the Secretary information on clinical quality measures and such other measures selected by the Secretary. To be a meaningful user, EPs must use a certified EHR to satisfy all Criteria and all Measures.
CMS Vision for Stages Requirements Scaling Up Over Time Stage 1Stage 2Stage 3 1.Capturing health information in a coded format 2.Using the information to track key clinical conditions 3.Communicating captured information for care coordination purposes 4.Reporting of clinical quality measures and public health information 1.Disease management, clinical decision support 2.Medication management 3.Support for patient access to their health information 4.Transitions in care 5.Quality measurement 6.Research 7.Bi-directional communication with public health agencies 1.Achieving improvements in quality, safety and efficiency 2.Focusing on decision support for national high priority conditions 3.Patient access to self- management tools 4.Access to comprehensive patient data 5.Improving population health outcomes For Stage 2, CMS may also consider applying the criteria more broadly to both the inpatient and outpatient hospital settings. CMS expects to propose Stage 2 criteria by the end of 2011. CMS expects to propose Stage 3 criteria by the end of 2013.
Meaningful Use Measures – Stage 1 Measures are grouped into two categories: Each measure is linked to a related Meaningful Use Objective 18 Electronic Health Record Technology Functionality Measures (8) Clinical Quality Measures (17)
