ONC HIT Policy Committee-MU Workgroup Discusses Stage 3, Specialties

On October 5-6, the Office of the National Coordinator for HIT (ONC) HIT Policy Committee-Meaningful Use (MU) Workgroup met to discuss the MU experience to date as well as potential concepts for Stage 3 MU. On the second day, members put together a small subcommittee to revisit specialized medicine and MU and come back with ideas for the workgroup’s October 18 teleconference.

The discussion leading up to the creation of the subcommittee was strikingly similar to the June 1 MU Workgroup meeting in which members decided to develop a secondary set of specialty recommendations as a caveat to advancing the primary care-oriented recommendations for Stage 2 MU functional objectives. This activity never occurred despite enthusiasm from physician organizations.
