The ONC must ensure the MU criteria related to interoperability isn’t too vague or broad.

Rumor has it that the proposed rule for Stage 3 of the Meaningful Use (MU) program could be released prior to the HIMSS conference in mid-April. The proposed rule was sent to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review in early January. While the OMB has its own timetable for review, speculation that the rule would be ready for public consumption by HIMSS escalated when a session titled “CMS Meaningful Use Stage 3 Requirements” was recently added to the HIMSS15 agenda.
