Slide notes:Let's go back to the original Stages 1 and 2. In Stage 1, eligible professionals had to meet 15 core and 5 of 10 menu objectives. Eligible hospitals had to meet 14 core and 5 of 10 menu objectives. These were essentially the same, although hospitals were not required to carry out electronic prescribing, since they tended to prescribe within their hospital by their computerized provider order entry systems. It was also specified that for eligible professionals and eligible hospitals, one of the menu objectives needed to be a public health measure. In Stage 2, some of the measures were consolidated and some new ones were added. Now, eligible professionals had to meet 17 core and 3 of 6 menu objectives, and eligible hospitals had to meet 16 core and 3 of 6 menu objectives. 10
