National Health IT Coordinator David Blumenthal Hints More Complex Requirements for 2013 Stage 2 Meaningful Use

National Health IT Coordinator David Blumenthal, MD, is signaling to healthcare providers and vendors that requirements for the 2013 stage two of meaningful use will be more complex and robust, according to a Government Health IT news report.

Dr. Blumenthal made his comments at an event that acknowledged the top 10 states where physicians were employing e-prescribing. "We know there were a set of unfinished tasks, things we passed over in the effort to get the first stage of meaningful use out the door," he said at the event. He has also suggested stage two will incorporate greater clinical decision support, which lacked in stage one.
