Comparing Meaningful Use Stage 1 & Stage 2

Will I report the same Meaningful Use measures for Stage 2?

To demonstrate Meaningful Use under Stage 2 criteria, Eligible professionals must meet 17 core objectives and 3 menu objectives they select from a list of 6, for a total of 20 core objectives (the same number of objectives that had to be met in Stage 1).

Stage 2 retains the core and menu structure for Meaningful Use objectives. Although some Stage 1 objectives were either combined or eliminated, most of the Stage 1 objectives are now core objectives under the Stage 2 criteria. For many of these Stage 2 objectives, the threshold that providers must meet for the objective has been raised. New objectives are also introduced for Stage 2, and most of these are introduced as menu objectives
