The rule finalizes modifications to Stages 1 and 2; the 2015 edition of electronic health records certification criteria; and Stage 3 of meaningful use.
Modifications
Under the modifications to Stages 1 and 2, eligible professionals have 10 meaningful use objectives, down from 18 previously. In Stage 3, there are 8 objectives for eligible professionals and hospitals, and more than 60 percent of measures require interoperability.
