An Automatic Tool to Help Clients Attest to Meaningful Use
LIVINGSTON, N.J., March 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With the launch of the meridianEMR Meaningful Use Tracking Board today, meridianEMR clients have a powerful new tool to simplify the process of attesting to Meaningful Use. Each client now has their own personal Tracking Board integrated into their system to provide status on all the Meaningful Use criteria automatically and in real-time.
This data-rich, interactive tool analyzes and calculates each core and each optional item in the Meaningful Use criteria. It provides an easy-to-read visual snapshot of each physician's status. The goal is to have each item appear in green (denoting completion) over a continuous 90 day period. Once this is accomplished, the client can go to the CMS website to attest to Meaningful Use for 2011.
The meridianEMR Meaningful Use Tracking Board was tested by several clients before full-scale rollout. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive due to the tool's automatic nature and helpfulness in gauging Meaningful Use status.
Terri Warden, Office Administrator at Urology Clinics of North Alabama comments, "The meridianEMR Meaningful Use Tracking Board showed me that we still had work to do and has made the difference in getting or not getting our incentive in the first 90 days. I know right where we are deficient. meridianEMR has so many tools to make life a little simpler in this crazy world of medicine. We appreciate the help!"
meridianEMR prides itself on partnering with clients to achieve Meaningful Use. Mike Custode, CEO, meridianEMR comments, "No other product in the Urology EHR market offers such a comprehensive approach to calculating Meaningful Use for customers. We are excited to provide them with a tool that does the work for them. It is one of the many ways we proactively address the needs of our client base."
