What is Meaningful Use?
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act is intended to ensure health providers become meaningful users of certified Electronic Health Records (EHRs). The use of certified EHR technology in a meaningful manner includes the kind of electronic prescribing that Comiere facilitates.
Meaningful Use under Medicare has now been consolidated into the Quality Payment Program (QPP) established under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) starting in 2017. Meaningful Use will continue under the Medicaid program until the final payments scheduled for 2021.
Why is it important?
Meaningful use of the sort of certified EHRs that Comiere specializes in results in the following:
- Enhanced quality, safety, efficiency, and removal of health disparities
- Patients who are engaged with their health
- Enhanced care coordination
- Improved public health
- Assured privacy and security protection for personal health data
How can Meaningful Use help my practice?
Eligible Professionals (EPs) or Eligible Hospitals (EHs) may qualify for an incentive payment from the CMS if they show that they have engaged in efforts to adopt or update certified EHR technology.
