Help Set the Stage for Stage 3 through the HIT Policy Committee’s Request for Comment

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology issued the following press release this month requesting input on Stage 3 meaningful use:

“Speak up now to help ONC’s Health Information Technology Policy Committee (HITPC) develop Stage 3 meaningful use recommendations that will target a collaborative model of care with shared responsibility and accountability, building up previous meaningful use objectives through the Request for Comment.

The deadline for comments is 11:59 p.m. ET on January 14, 2013. Detailed instructions for submitting comments will be included when the comment period opens on regulations.gov next week.

Following the analysis of the comments received throughout the comment period, the HIPTC intends to revisit these recommendations in its public meetings in the first quarter of 2013.”
