Getting Started With Meaningful Use?.
How to make Meaningful Use Easy?
75Health provides you all the resources and tools required by you for achieving meaningful use incentives. According to the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements, providers are to be attested to use at a minimum, EHR technology that is certified to the 2014 edition. Attesting providers may also use any EHR technology certified to the 2015 edition; they may use a combination of both as well.
We were making use of an enterprise-based system that we were not able to afford with regard to tech support because of increasing costs. After we found 75Health, we switched, and we found our productivity having increased since then. Now, we have achieved meaningful use and have received incentives too.
Preparing a medical practice for Meaningful Use
We have all the essential resources that are easy-to-use and our EHR features will help you to achieve Meaningful Use smoothly. A number of steps are involved in setting up the account with regard to starting the program; they are described.
Adding practice staff
All of your practice staff need to be added as users, with each having separate log in credentials. This ensures that everyone will contribute toward achieving meaningful use criteria.
E-prescribing must be enabled
Sending prescriptions electronically is a way of meeting many meaningful use measures in a single strike.
Connecting lab and imaging centers
One of the metrics toward meaningful use criteria in practices is ordering and receiving lab and imaging.
Each patient visit to be charted
Based on all the patients that you see regardless of whether they qualify for Medicare or Medicaid, meaningful use demands that you chart all patients, no matter what their insurance status. Chart notes for each and every patient visit must be signed for getting credit in the meaningful use dashboard.
