Meaningful Use


Your Partner for Meaningful Use

You need a partner that understands the CMS objectives that are mandatory to qualify for the incentive payments and ever changing stages of Meaningful Use. Let Fusion be that partner.

The attestation process to qualify for Meaningful Use (MU) incentives under the HITECH Act is well underway. As the federal initiative drives physicians to fully leverage EHRs for more efficientand effective patient care, those who are aligned and ready will reap the bottom line profits.

It’s not just about the available federal dollars – the use of EHRs has been proven to positively impact practice profitability by creating workflow efficiencies and improving patient care. Virtual OfficeWare’s solutions can help practices fully leverage both the federal incentives and inherent benefits of advanced EHR technology.

With Fusion’s help, clinics can:

  • Stay ahead of federally-mandated changes and deadlines
  • More easily report, or attest, to each physicians’ “meaningful use”
  • Secure incentive payments without delay
  • Enhance workflows and enable new applications and functions within Centricity

 

Fusion offers the following solutions to help you achieve Meaningful Use:

Whether you have participated in Meaningful Use since its inception or are brand new to the program, the Final Rule passed in October 2015 has put everyone on the same playing field with the same set of objectives now known as Modified Stage 2.  The Final Rule’s provisions encompass 2015 through 2017 (Modified Stage 2) as well as Stage 3 in 2018 and beyond.

 

Starting in 2015 and moving forward, all providers are required to attest to a single set of objectives and measures. This replaces the core and menu structure of previous stages.  For EPs, there are 10 objectives.

A key advantage of being a Fusion customer is that we have a wealth of Meaningful Use resources available for each of these 10 objectives.  These resources include Job Aids, Troubleshooting Guides, Webinars and much more.  These resources will not only help quatris-clinical-reportingyou understand the objectives and how to meet them in Centricity but will also provide you information on the overall attestation process.  To take advantage of these free resources click HERE.

Centricity utilizes a cloud-based reporting model known as CQR (Clinical Quality Reporting).  CQR allows providers to carry out their day-to-day workflows in Centricity and then provides them with a Dashboard Report to monitor their outcomes on both Core Objectives and Clinical Quality Measures.  Our CQR User Guide is also found on Podio by clicking HERE.
