  10. Summary of Hearing – Meaningful Use The ONC efforts toward Meaningful Use have raised awareness to the benefits of EHR Medical malpractice insurance costs rising due to MU (separate hearing?) More clarity in Meaningful Use definition Using the system meaningfully versus achieving Meaningful Use (focus more on outcomes) Need for clear path with end goal stated and flexibility allowed to get there

  11. Summary of Hearing – Meaningful Use (continued) Seeking MU has derailed organization's HIT strategic plan - and not necessarily in a way that improves quality and efficiency of patient care   Functionality does not equate to usability Quality Measures are a sore point TIME – keep the bar high, but be more realistic in the timeframes to achieve

  12. Summary of Hearing – Certification Certification seems to be working well Communications: concern with CMS' responsiveness to questions and the completeness of their FAQ pages Choreography with the other agencies: Concern about the "moving target" status of certification tests Failure of certification to reflect how software is developed Concern that some vendors being certified for Stage 1 will not be capable of meeting stages 2 and 3

  13. Summary of Hearing – REC/HIE REC is not consistent, but several comments on positive value of REC Various questions around the viability of HIE Concern by REC’s of having favored vendor lists

  14. Summary of Hearing – General Layering on of various federal requirements “A bad standard is better than 3 standards” Confusion about rules of the road  Several workforce worries

  15. Provide adequate time. Keep it simple. Don’t let “perfect be the enemy of “good enough.” Keep the implementation cost as low as possible. Design for the little guy. Pick a standard(s) soon. Address workforce issues. Increase focus on “usability”. Improve choreography between federal agencies impacting HIT. Create a crosswalk between MU and certification requirements. Provide adequate time (purposely listed again). Top Ten Recommendations (adaption from HITSC)

  16. Continue working with the HITSC Implementation Workgroup Chairs How to continue influence MU Workgroup efforts Hearing in late spring on legal considerations of MU and EHR Next Steps
