The federal Health Information Technology Policy Committee is seeking public comment on its proposed Stage 2 meaningful-use recommendations for electronic health-record system subsidies under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
A 19-page set of instructions (PDF) for individuals and organizations seeking to submit comments is posted on HHS' website. Included in the instructions are the committee's draft recommendations.
The comment period begins next week and ends Feb. 25. The Health IT Policy Committee will consider all of the comments in making its final recommendations this summer to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at HHS, according to a news release.
The Stage 2 criteria are expected to be incorporated into the EHR incentive program in 2013.
