The attestation rate for hospitals eligible to attest to Stage 2 of the Meaningful Use program currently stands at 77 percent, according to Elisabeth Myers from the CMS Office of E-Health Standards and Services.

Myers gave a presentation on the latest CMS data at Tuesday’s Health IT Policy Committee meeting in which she said that the 77 percent attestation rate was based on that fact that so far 1,814 hospitals had attested to Stage 2 out of 2,115 eligible hospitals. To be eligible to attest to Stage 2, they had to complete two years of Stage 1 attestation. As a result, only a little more than half of hospitals were eligible to attest to Stage 2 in 2014.
