Medicare EHR Incentive Program—Eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAHs) must successfully demonstrate meaningful use of certified electronic health record technology every year they participate in the program.
Medicaid EHR Incentive Program—Eligible professionals and eligible hospitals may qualify for incentive payments if they adopt, implement, upgrade or demonstrate meaningful use in their firs

year of participation. They must successfully demonstrate meaningful use for subsequent participation years.

Adopted:  Acquired and installed certified EHR technology. (For example, can show evidence of installation.)
Implemented: Began using certified EHR technology. (For example, provide staff training or data entry of patient demographic information into EHR.)
Upgraded: Expanded existing technology to meet certification requirements. (For example, upgrade to certified EHR technology or add new functionality to meet the definition of certified EHR technology.)

 

Meaningful Stages

“Meaningful use” includes standards such as online access for patients to their health information and electronic health information exchange between Provider.
Under Stage 2 criteria, clinicians must meet (or qualify for an exclusion to) 17 core objectives and 3 of 5 menu objectives. Eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals (CAH) must meet 16 core objectives and 2 of 4 menu objectives. By comparison, under Stage 1 criteria clinicians were required to meet 15 core objective and choose from five of 10 menu items.

      Clinicians must also report on 12 clinical quality measures, compared to Stage 1's six quality measures. Eligible hospitals and CAHs must report 24 clinical quality measures, whereas Stage 1 required only 15.

The proposed Stage 2 criteria focuses on how healthcare facilities can exchange key clinical information about patients and provide patients with online access to their health data
