AHA will host two member conference calls in October that will summarize and answer questions about the final rules for Stage 2 "meaningful use" of electronic health records, information that will help hospitals as they prepare for Stage 1 and plan for Stage 2. The first call (Oct. 17) will focus on hospitals and the second (Oct. 24) on hospitals working with affiliated physicians.
