HL7 EHR-S Functional Profile: Meaningful Use, Release 1 - US Realm

DESCRIPTION

The HL7 Meaningful Use Functional Profile (MU FP) conforms to the HL7 EHR-S FM Release 2.0 and identifies functional requirements and conformance criteria corresponding to US Meaningful Use Stage 1 and 2 certification criteria. 

The intent of the MU FP is to build the EHRS FM to a common end point with US Meaningful Use EHR System Functional Requirements (as specified by US regulations, ONC Meaningful Use Certification Criteria and NIST Test Procedures).
