Possible one year delay to Stage 2 Meaningful Use?

Paul Tang, MD

According to an article in Healthcare IT News, an advisory panel that is shaping measures for the next stage of meaningful use has suggested delaying Stage 2 by one year, until 2014, as an option to give vendors and healthcare providers more time to update and roll out more advanced technology.  The panel is chaired by Paul Tang, MD (the CMIO from Palo Alto Medical Foundation).  If approved, providers who achieved level 2 during 2011 would be harmed by losing one year of incentive rewards.
