"Meeting your Electronic Health Record (EHR) Meaningful Use Measure Set(s) by partnering with ASHLine" - 08/18/2011
Presenter: Connie Diaz, MPH
The Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs provide a financial incentive for the "meaningful use" of certified EHR technology to achieve health and efficiency goals. By putting into action and meaningfully using an EHR system, providers will reap benefits beyond financial incentives-such as reduction in errors, availability of records and data, reminders and alerts, clinical decision support, and e-prescribing/refill automation. Establishing a partnership with a quitline can ensure that you meet several of your Electronic Health Record Meaningful Use measures. Learn how to establish a workflow within your EHR to ensure your tobacco measures are met.
