Alliance Letter on Meaningful Use
The Alliance wrote the US Department of Health and Human Services’ National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, to share thoughts on the Health Information Technology Policy Committee’s (HITPC) preliminary recommendations for Stage 3, and future stages, of meaningful use. Final recommendations for meaningful use by the HITPC will inform future rulemakings associated with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program.
