National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics, a federal advisory body, feels that the Office of the National Coordinator's plan to require use of EHR metadata in Stage 2 of the meaningful use program is premature.

Its members contend that this approach is not in current use and there are no accepted standards for metadata tags. "Consequently, we believe that it is premature to start the rulemaking process for metadata standards without having a better understanding of the current level of maturity of those standards, assessment of the degree to which they have been tested or even used in the industry, a careful analysis of possible unintended consequences, and, more importantly, a policy framework that defines their use."
