In a recent letter to the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee, TMA's Matt Murray, MD, chairman of the TMA Ad Hoc Committee on Health Information Technology, urges Congress to stop Medicare from requiring any new Stage 2 meaningful use criteria.  Adding to this burden are the pending EHR penalties on Medicare changes scheduled to take effect on Jan. 1, 2015.
