ONC HITSC Standards Task Force Begins to Explore Technical Feasibility of HITPC Meaningful Use Workgroup’s Recommendations

The newly formed Standards Task Force of the HIT Standards Committee (HITSC) held its first meeting on March 7 to gear up for future discussions on the technical feasibility of the HIT Policy Committee (HITPC) Meaningful Use (MU) Workgroup’s Stage 3 recommendations. The task force will examine the Stage 3 MU advice from a “standards maturity” (immature, emerging, approved, or adopted) and “development effort” (low, med, or high) point of view.

The full HITPC is expected to approve the MU Workgroup’s recommendations at its monthly meeting on March 11. The HITSC’s Standards Task Force will then convene discussions on March 17 and March 24 to organize and refine opinions on technical feasibility. The finalized findings will be presented to the full HITSC on March 26.

After reviewing the HITPC’s Stage 3 MU recommendations, the task force will shift its focus over to proposals in the Office of the National Coordinator for HIT’s (ONC) 2015 Edition EHR Certification Criteria proposed rule.
