doctor computer With Stage 1 of Meaningful Use complete, it is now time to move into Stage 2.  Stage 1 required use of CPOE for more than 30% of medication orders.  Stage 2 requires that more than 60% of medication orders, more than 30% of laboratory orders, and more than 30% of radiology orders created by eligible professionals or authorized providers of the hospital’s inpatient or ED department during the EHR reporting period be recorded using CPOE.  This means that you or a licensed staff person will have to use the EHR’s CPOE module to enter these labs.  CMS clarified that a licensed health care professional includes licensed nurses and credentialed medical assistants.
