Meaningful Use Stage 2 Standards Video – Meaningful Use Monday

Self proclaimed Standards Geek for GE Healthcare, Keith Boone, did a good presentation covering the meaningful use stage 2 standards along with briefly covering the meaningful use stage 1 standards and looking at the standards we might see beyond meaningful use stage 2. This meaningful use stage 2 standards presentation was done at the Crossing the Infrastructure and HITECH Meaningful Use Divide conference.

If you’re into healthcare standards, then you’ll enjoy this video. If you get confused or just don’t care about the various alphabet soup standards, then you won’t find this video that interesting or likely useful.

I think this video also illustrates a couple important points. First, healthcare standards are pretty complex. Second, a lot of thought and effort has been put towards these standards. Thanks to meaningful use and the EHR incentive money, EHR vendors don’t really have too much choice on whether to adopt these standards or not any more. Although, as Keith point out, these are just proposed standards. The meaningful use stage 2 feedback period is still open, so I encourage you to provide your comments during this period. ONC does listen to this feedback and do its best to incorporate it in the final rule.

As a side note, if you like EHR and Health IT videos, be sure to check out this EMR & EHR Video website. We just passed the 200th video posted on that site. Plus, I just did some math using our analytics programs and we’ve had about 432 hours of video watched on that site this year.
