Workgroups of the HIT Policy and Standards Committees that advise federal officials have issued two requests for public comment as they start to piece together criteria for Stage 3 of the electronic health records meaningful use program.

One request for comments focuses on ways to advance delivery of high quality care in Stage 3 by using real-time clinical decision support, having the ability to query questions and get answers about patient populations, and utilizing prospective identification of care improvement opportunities.

The other request focuses on incorporation of patient-generated data from personal health records, glucose monitors and other sources in Stage 3 requirements. More information and specific questions to which the workgroups seek answers are available here and here.
