Stage 2 meaningful use raises the bar, expert warns docs to get ready

Dan Prevost of Arcadia Solutions discusses the impact of the enhanced requirements of stage 2 meaningful use.

Dan Prevost, consultant at Arcadia Solutions, recently helped complete a report highlighting some prominent aspects of the proposed stage 2 meaningful use rules. The report points out some of the tricky regulations that could trip up physicians, as well as things providers will need to think about to ensure compliance.

We spoke with Prevost immediately after the finalized rules were published. He gave his thoughts on getting physician buy-in when implementing an electronic health record system that complies with the meaningful use rules; achieving objectives for patient engagement; and how the rules are encouraging vendors to build better products for physicians.
