According to the final rules of Stage 2 Meaningful Use, clinicians must start recoding electronic notes and patient history as structured data within the EHR to facilitate health information exchange (HIE) between providers.

However, many clinicians feel restricted by the checkbox templates in EHRs, feeling the patient story cannot be completely captured. This leaves these clinicians to revert to prior methods of transcription and dictation – which often reinstates the costs EHRs are supposed to eliminate.

Gain further insight into the Stage 2 rules and learn about an evolving technology – natural language processing (NLP) – that allows clinicians to express themselves freely with unrestricted language and then identifies information in their unstructured text and transforms it into data to input into the EHR and truly achieve Meaningful Use from it.
