Meaningful use stage 3 is the third phase of the meaningful use incentive program which details the third section of requirements for the use of electronic health record (EHR) systems by hospitals and eligible health care professionals.

Along with meaningful use stage 1 and meaningful use stage 2, the third list of criteria and regulations is being established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC).

While the process of establishing criteria is in progress for stage 2, stage 3 remains more of a mystery, as only a handful of criteria have been proposed. Meaningful use stage 3 is likely to follow the same format as its predecessors, with a divide between core (mandatory) and menu (optional) requirements, continuations of stage 1 and stage 2 requirements and addition of some new requirements.

The commencement of meaningful use stage 3 will be announced at a later date.
