Great article, Hardeep. Let's all hope it pushes the needle faster and further.

"Hospitals systems can help by providing high-tech decision support tools…." and these tools also now qualify for stage 2 of Meaningful Use. The latest Tip sheet from CMS entitled "Clinical Decision Support: More than Just Alerts" actually lists "types of CDS interventions consistent with HHS' broad definition" and includes " Suggestions for possible diagnoses based on patient specific information retrieved from a patient's EMR"

You can access the tip sheet from this link http://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Legislation/EHRIncentivePrograms/Downloads/ClinicalDecisionSupport_Tipsheet-.pdf

As far as I am aware, this is the first time that the MU criteria have specifically mentioned diagnosis decision support. Since this kind of decision support is relatively quick and easy to implement, it should be an attractive option to help hospital systems achieve MU2.
