Comment from Richard Elmore


A “thank you” to the workgroup for the work they completed on the Stage 1 MU Individual Involvement requirements. The team can now go into “monitor mode” until we start on Stage 2 MU in the fall.

Recap of meeting with Devin. Good exchange with respect to position of the WG relating to Individual to Provider messaging. Devin expressed interest in more involvement with the workgroup. Anticipating more visibility by early fall.

Call for comments by Richard Elmore on the following: For Individual to Provider messaging, we are dependent on information from the policy committee and details on how Security and Trust will work and what we need to be mindful of. By September we will reengage. Do people agree with the summary, and the WG's perspective?
