The Office for the Coordinator of Health IT (ONC) has released an updated version of its “quick reference grids," which aim to help providers understand what they have to do successfully attest to meaningful use by putting the objectives in one place. ONC released two separate 2014 Meaningful Use Quick Reference Grids; one for Stage 1 and one for Stage 2.

The grids follow the same format as the first version, with the first two columns referencing meaningful use objectives and measures and the third and forth columns referencing the certification and standards criteria that correlate with each meaningful use objective and measure. Before each column there are asterisks which declare whether this applies to eligible professionals (EPs), eligible hospitals (EH), or critical access hospitals (CAHs), or all of the above.

Get the latest information on Meaningful Use and attend other valuable sessions at this two-day Summit providing healthcare leaders with educational content, insightful debate and dialogue on the future of healthcare and technology.
