Key Considerations for Health Information Organizations Supporting Meaningful Use Stage 2 Transition of Care Measures

"On behalf of the Office of the National Coordinator, Audacious Inquiry has prepared "Key Considerations for Health Information Organizations Supporting Meaningful Use Stage 2 Transition of Care Measures." The purpose of this document is to provide Health Information Exchange Organizations (HIOs) and health information service providers (HISPs) with expanded advice on how to support the Transitions of Care measure 2, which requires 10% of referrals by eligible providers/hospitals to be sent electronically. Built into the document are expectations about what CMS will require if an eligible provider is audited. While CMS will issue formal audit guidelines later in the year, planning now to meet these requirements is crucial. We encourage you to utilize this guidance in conjunction with the Transitions of Care Interoperability Training Module on healthit.gov."
