FEATURED FAQ

How should I prepare for meeting Stage 3 measures

EPs are encouraged to work closely with the vendor to ensure an understanding of 2015 Edition CEHRT functionality. Many of the objectives require multiple functions and it is important to understand what actions must be take on the part of the EP and staff and how the system is capturing the data to populate the meaningful use report. Additionally, EPS should routinely run their Stage 3 meaningful use report to determine the status of meeting measures. If measures are not being met, then the EP will have the opportunity to implement action prior to the end of the EHR reporting period.
