The Department of Health and Human Services has sent to the Federal Register two notices of proposed rulemaking for Stage 2 of the electronic health records meaningful use program. The rules will be available on Feb. 23 on the Federal Register Public Inspection Desk, and within days officially published.

The proposed rules have a 60-day public comment period following publication. Federal officials hope to publish final rules in mid-summer. One rule sets the policies and criteria for achieving Stage 2 meaningful use; the other rule would adopt standards, implementation specifications and certification criteria to ensure EHRs support Stage 2 objectives.
