Slide notes:However, there have also been challenges for meaningful use. Some categories of hospitals have had more challenges than others. In particular, critical access hospitals, smaller hospitals, and public hospitals have had more difficulty meeting meaningful use requirements, as have pediatric hospitals. Many EPs and EHs have noted the challenging criteria, which some describe as unruly workflows. These criteria are things such as having to provide clinical summaries to patients, electronic prescribing, reporting clinical quality measures, recording vital signs, and recording smoking status. 16
