Yep, that’s the major noise you heard at HIMSS today. The Meaningful Use Stage 2 NPRM sucked the life out of HIMSS today it seems. It was funny seeing many of the major EHR vendors scrambling to get their thoughts on MU stage 2 out. I’m not sure what’s the big rush.
You can also get the meaningful use stage 2 fact sheet on CMS.gov.
I will refrain from any rush to judgment about meaningful use stage 2. It’s not going to be implemented for quite a while, so we have time to digest it properly. I’m sure we’ll cover meaningful use stage 2 a lot more to come in the future.
Until then, I’m ready for my post-HIMSS recovery. Although, both keynotes look pretty interesting tomorrow.
