Stage 2 Core and Menu Objectives

Stage 2 uses a core and menu structure for objectives that providers must achieve in order to demonstrate meaningful use. Core objectives are objectives that all providers must meet. There are also a predetermined number of menu objectives that providers must select from a list and meet in order to demonstrate meaningful use.

To demonstrate meaningful use under Stage 2 criteria—

  • Eligible professionals must meet:
  1. 17 core objectives
  2. 3 menu objectives that they select from a total list of 6
  3. Total of 20 objectives
  • Eligible hospitals and CAHs must meet:
  1. 16 core objectives
  2. 3 menu objectives that they select from a total list of 6
  3. Total of 19 objectives

The Stage 2 Overview Tipsheet provides a complete list of the Stage 2 core and menu objectives for eligible professionals, eligible hospitals and CAHs.

Clinical Quality Measures

Eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and CAHs are required to report clinical quality measures (CQMs) during each year of participation in order to receive an incentive. Visit the Clinical Quality Measures Basics page to learn more about the options for CQM submission in 2014.
