Abstract:     
This article, a follow-up to Certification and Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records: Reframing Adoption as a Quality and Reimbursement Imperative, IND. HEALTH L. REV., Vol. 8, No. 45, pp. 45-68, 2011, begins by briefly restating the concepts behind the “meaningful use of certified EMR technology” and the types of requirements included in the MU stage 1 regulation of 2010. Second, the article provides additional context for the design of stages 2 and 3, noting for example the impact of more general healthcare reform and some studies that have been critical of the MU strategy. Third, the article briefly explains the processes behind the development of stage 2 and the criticisms leveled at early drafts. Finally, with Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Agencies apparently once again bowing to HIT and healthcare industry pressure (or, depending on your perspective, showing flexibility), some key questions are posed as to the eventual success of the subsidy program.
