UNC Health Care would like to submit the following comments regarding the Stage 2 proposed rule for electronic health record (EHR) meaningful use (MU) criteria for eligible professionals (EPs) and eligible hospitals (EHs).

We feel that UNC Health Care can make valuable contributions to the rules process and improvement of the Stage 2 proposed rule. Within our system we have dealt with many of the nuances of Meaningful Use that face academic medical centers and large integrated systems. These nuances include self-certification, and attestation under various platforms, vendors, and EHRs.

We appreciate the work that CMS has done to date with the development of the Stage 2 proposed rule. Our team is in agreement with a majority of the proposed changes, objectives, measures, and goals. Most of our comments focus on intricacies of numerators and denominators, clarification and additions of some needed exclusions, and revision to the goals for a few measures. We hope you find our comments helpful.
