Republican Senators Call for One-year Meaningful Use Extension

The dizzying pace of changes in healthcare law over the past several years has led some Republican senators to call for an extension of the Meaningful Use Stage 2 deadlines. Under the current timetable, many physicians and hospitals will be required to invest extensively in new technology by the end of 2014. The senators are calling for a one-year extension, arguing that small and rural providers will be hurt by the timeline. They also argue that the current transition timeline could be disorderly and that it might limit buy-in by healthcare providers.
