On January 13thDr. Halamka posted this presentation on his blog (at the above link) that describes the requirements of the Interim Final Rule and Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. Since he noted that it could be downloaded and used by others for dissemination of its valuable information. I changed the background and colorsbut not the contentfor readability purposes. It is a concise interpretation of the requirements contained in the rule.
His presentation contains the Interim Final Rules standards for Stage
1 (2011) followed by the standards for Stage 2
(2013). In the Meaningful Use sectionhe listed 25 projects and their metrics for achieving stimulus funding.
