Slide notes:In this lecture, we will continue our discussion of the HITECH Act and achieving meaningful use. We will discuss how the meaningful use program has been operationalized, with the warning that there is a great deal of detail included here. It's most important, though, to keep your eye on the big picture. In the meaningful use program, recall that there are eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals, and that they need to meet three requirements to receive reimbursement funds: One requirement is meeting the meaningful use objectives in the various stages. In the original Stages 1 and 2, each had two sets of objectives. The first set of objectives were the core objectives. All of the core objectives had to be met. For the second set of objectives, users could choose a required number from a larger menu of options. Recently, Stage 2 has been modified to have only core objectives. In addition, the criteria for Stage 3 have been released. In this new setup , those seeking remuneration via the meaningful use program must meet all of the objectives; there are no choices. 4
