If Stage 3 requirements do not include 100% of patients, how helpful will this actually be for the physician and patient. A patient who wants access to their records, but was not selected by the physician to be placed in the EHR system or a patient who does not have the means or interest in accessing their records and was selected by the physician for EHR both create waste and frustration from the patient and physician. Hopefully a commonsense method of coordinating patient interest in EHR will drive the selection of patients by the physician.

A citizen interested is avoiding wasteful spending and maintaining low cost access to health services

Let's just get MU2 correct first as we know it is poorly designed altough intensions are good. The govt. needs to set up a database for everybody to export and import to. Storage is cheap!!!! Then they can figure out how to use the data and leave us docs to do MEDICINE. The data will allow all parties to work in the same system. Interfaces to the data would make all EHRs compatible and save money due to HIE addition programing, for MU to infinity can be done though the data not the doc office, and any other things the idiots can think of. Make it simple for ALL! Get it right before expanding the system that is now a burden.
