Meaningful Use Integration Solutions

For healthcare organization CIOs, one of the biggest priorities of your team is to achieve Meaningful Use through stages 1,2, and 3 to maximize the quality of patient care through secure use and sharing of health information.

As a significant part of the passage of Meaningful Use criteria set forth by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, eligible professionals and hospitals who adopt, implement, upgrade, or demonstrate meaningful use of certified electronic health record (EHR) technology are authorized to receive incentive payments.

Adopting the right integration solutions directly contributes to the overarching goal of a single, comprehensive electronic health record (EHR) which results in better, more informed care, and the maximization of program options.

Importantly, with the right tools and guidance, the creation of a Meaningful Use compliant healthcare system can also lead to cost savings, increased efficiency, and less loss due to readmissions, mistakes and other costly but avoidable issues.
