Key highlights from #2 above,

  • CCHIT not grand‐fathered as an ATCB, previously certified products must be re-certified – work on the vendor side and I cant gauge the impact
  • Key Applications Needed to Meet Stage 1 Meaningful Use Requirements
    •  Core HIS System with Clinical Data Repository
    •  Clinical Documentation
    •  Clinical Decision Support
    •  Computerized Physician Order Entry
    •  Medication Management
    •  ED System or module
