MU2 – #3 The Same … But More
This is part 3 of MSOC Health’s series on Getting Ready for MU 2.
Many of the measures in Stage 2 of Meaningful Use are the same as those in Stage 1, however measures that were optional have become required and thresholds have increased. The following charts provide a summary of these relatively straightforward changes:
Stage 1 Core Measures With Higher Thresholds in Stage 2
Stage 1 Menu Set Measures That Become Core in Stage 2
Note: Syndromic Surveillance Registry remains a Menu Set Measure for Stage 2
Of course, there are many new and revised criteria as well. Future Blog Posts will cover these in much greater detail.
