Meaningful Use Stage 2 Guidelines in Digestable Format

John Crankshaw and Jonathan Ploudre have put together a look at the meaningful use stage 2 guidelines in the most digestable format I’ve seen. You can find the PDF of their MU stage 2 guidelines here. I wish that it was a webpage instead of a PDF, but beggars can’t be choosers I guess.

I haven’t dug into the document completely to verify the accuracy of every single thing, but I did check a bunch of them and they were spot on. I think doctors will really love this summary of the meaningful use stage 2 guidelines. Hopefully many doctors will look it over and provide comments during the meaningful use stage 2 comment period. You have until May 7, 2012 to comment on MU stage 2.

  • Originally it was a web version, too. I eliminated it because it wasn’t nearly as readable with printing. And I imagined this as a double sided print out that after you read and highlighted, you might pass on to a partner.

    Thanks for linking.!

  • PDF’s are often better for printing. Plus, they aren’t nearly as horrible now since they usually open within the browser. I just have residual dislike for PDFs.

    Thanks for creating a great document.
