On May 18, 2009, the National Committee on Health & Vital Statistics (NCHVS) issued a 32-page report on the public hearing that the NCHVS held on April 28-29, 2009, to solicit testimony to help define and clarify the the term “meaningful use” under the ARRA. The report digests the testimony and organizes it into five categories of questions for the Office of National Coordinator (ONC) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The categories are: 1) Vision of Health and Health Care Transformed; 2) Meaningful Use Capacity; 3) Path to Meaningful Use; 4) Certification and Meaningful Use: EHR Product Certification; and 5) Measuring Meaningful Use. Appendix B of the Reports lists the 100+ participants who provided oral and written testimony for the hearing. To read the report click here.
