This is important because accountable care organizations and other efforts to better coordinate care rely on appropriate information exchange among a variety of providers who may or may not be EHR meaningful users. “While these certification criteria were specifically adopted to support health care providers seeking to achieve meaningful use, we believe that they are generally applicable to many health care settings,” according to the guidance.
