The Meaningful Use Workgroup's recommendations for stage 3 EHR MU were approved by the Health IT Policy Committee on Tuesday, although there was some disagreement over the direction taken. Of the 26 initial measures, eight recommendations related to imaging, care planning, reminders, medication adherence and other topics were removed by the workgroup. The measures will be sent to the CMS, which plans to create a proposed stage 3 rule by fall and a final rule next year.
