Meaningful Use Incentive — A leader in EHR Meaningful Use
MediTouch was one of the first five pure ambulatory EHRs to achieve 2014 Meaningful Use certification and we rank in the top 10 percent of all EHRs that have had at least one successful Meaningful Use attestation.
Currently, to receive EHR Meaningful Use payment, providers must meet certain requirements like recorded patient information and exchange of summary care records. The goal of the program is to use EHR technology to improve quality, safety and efficiency, engage patients and their families, improve care coordination, while maintaining patient privacy. Meaningful Use is also meant to empower patients to take the reigns on their own health care.
Right now, each consecutive stage of Meaningful Use builds upon the requirements and advances of the previous stage, so that providers can gradually increase and fine tune their EHR use. Proposed modifications were proposed and finalized in October of 2015.
Stages of Meaningful Use
Stage 1: First year of attestation, 90-day period, data capturing and sharing
Stage 2: Advance clinical processes, two-year period
Stage 3: Improved outcomes
Although the existing set of standards may eventually change over time, they will not be eliminated entirely. Meaningful Use will see a shift in approach to a focus on care, and technology will continue to play a big part in positive patient outcomes.
A great EHR provides physicians with the proper tools to not only meet Meaningful Use requirements, but also to truly elevate the level and quality of care that physicians provide to their patients.
