Meet the Requirements for Meaningful Use with Ensocare

To qualify for EHR incentive payment, you must attest (legally state) through Medicare's secure website that you've demonstrated meaningful use with certified EHR technology. Our software helps you to achieve some of the most challenging of the CMS requirements:

  • Clinical integration
  • Secure, direct document sharing
  • EHR interoperability

Ensocare's focus on innovation and customer service mean we will be here to assist your organization through the changing health-care landscape today, and well into the future.

 

What is Meaningful Use?

Meaningful use is using certified electronic health record technology (CERHT) to:

  • Improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities
  • Engage patients and family
  • Improve care coordination, and population and public health
  • Maintain privacy and security of patient health information

Ultimately, it is hoped that the meaningful use compliance will result in:

  • Better clinical outcomes
  • Improved population health outcomes
  • Increased transparency and efficiency
  • Empowered individuals
  • More robust research data on health systems

Meaningful use sets specific objectives that eligible professionals (EPs) and  eligible hospitals (EHs) must achieve to qualify for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Incentive Programs. 

 


 

In October 2015, CMS released a final rule that specifies criteria that eligible professionals (EPs), eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAHs) must meet in order to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs

What does it mean to “meet Meaningful Use” requirements?

Essentially, it means a provider satisfied these three requirements:

1) use CEHRT;
2) meet all MU objectives/measures; and
3) report CQMs (clinical quality measures).
