The American Academy of Family Physicians has asked the ONC to move the adoption of the third stage of meaningful use to 2017. "We remain concerned that HHS is attempting to raise the bar for what constitutes meaningful use before the majority of physicians and hospitals are able to achieve the meaningful use stage 1 or 2 objectives," said Dr. Glen Stream, board chairman of the AAFP, in a letter sent to National HIT Coordinator Dr. Farzad Mostashari.
