Making Meaningful Use

Making Meaningful Use Easy IS Among our Priorities.

Meaningful Use - The Basics

Meaningful Use is the set of particular objectives that eligible medical professionals and healthcare facilities are required to qualify for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) incentive payments for electronic health records (EHRs). Providers are required to prove that they have indeed achieved meaningful use of EHRs.

Significance of Meaningful Use

Incentive payments have been extended to eligible professionals having successfully demonstrated meaningful use of certified EHR technology - this has been enforced under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act) enacted under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). The Recovery Act describes three primary components of meaningful use.

It is mandatory that providers show that they are making use of certified EHR technology in such ways as can be significantly gauged in quantity and quality.
We enable you to get started in a simple way. We will support you all the way throughout the process.

Meaningful Use stages:

Stage 1: Data capturing and sharing.

Stage 2: Coordination and exchange of patient information.

Stage 3: Improved healthcare outcomes.

Three specified requirements for meaningful use:

  • Use of certified EHR technology in meaningful manner.
  • Use of certified EHR technology in a way that supports electronic exchange of medical data for enhancing care quality
  • Use of certifies EHR technology for submitting clinical quality measures and other measures.
By empowering our clients to achieve meaningful use, we help them avoid penalties, qualify for incentive payments, and ensure that they may assess their progress toward achieving meaningful use at any time. We have provided a Meaningful Use dashboard that displays these details clearly.
