Feedback May Impact ONC Timetable

The U.S. Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) recently issued a call for comments on its proposed stage 2 and stage meaningful use requirements.  This call for comments has generated considerable feedback, most of which has been posted publicly and has been reported in various publications.   According to recent healthsystemCIO.com article, an ONC workgroup “will review the timing of its staging structure”.

Of particular interest to me was workgroup member Judy Murphy’s observation that “There appears to be a groundswell movement which has people sending (blog) postings back and forth.”.  Apparently, public debate using social media tools such as a blog can have an impact.
