MeaningfulUse 2014 - 2015 Crosswalk

In the spirit of industry cooperation which often accompanies new regulation, Hans Buitendijk, a standards colleague in HL7 by day (and my favored candidate for HL7 Chair), and a competitor at Seimens the rest of the time, has shared the following comparison of the 2014 Certification Criteria against the 2015 Criteria.

He notes:
  • It only compares 2014 FR with 2015 proposed amended language for part 170 starting page 205.
    • Various standards are referenced in the pre-amble (e.g., HQMF, UCUM, etc.) that are not in the proposed amended language.I did not attempt to include those as I have not delved into the pre-amble yet.
  • The text in red indicates variances that matter.
    • For example, splitting CPOE into three criteria or combining two ToC criteria into one and adding 4 transmit criteria does not turn everything red as there are chunks that really did not change. I think in the process I caught all, but I may still have missed something.

Please join me in thanking Hans and his employer for sharing this greatly valuable resource!
