1. INTRODUCTION

The Practice Readiness Assessment tool will help you quickly assess your practices level of readiness for
meeting CMS meaningful use requirements by early 2011. The tool is required for acceptance of your
practice into the Regional Extension Program and for your practice to receive subsidized support
services. Practices that do not meet a base readiness level will be given feedback and will be asked to
complete readiness activities before proceeding with the REC program.

The tool is a quick web survey and will be followed up in some cases with a brief phone interview.
