This report summarizes key findings from the roundtable discussion and outlines options based on the discussion for ONC’s Federal Advisory Committees members—the HIT Policy and HIT Standards Committees—to consider when developing recommendations for additional EHR Certification Criteria (EHR CC) and additional Stage 3 MU requirements and measures. The recommendations in this report are based on the roundtable discussion. The roundtable discussion did not address operationalization of recommendations. Thus, implementation of recommendations is beyond the scope of this report.
