Meaningful Use and Transcription

Meaningful Use of EHR


According to the provisions of the HITECH Act of 2009, organizations that are eligible for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program and achieve Meaningful Use by 2014 will be eligible for incentive payments. Those who have failed to achieve that standard by 2015 may be penalized. To receive the maximum reimbursement, physicians and hospitals must have achieved stage I of Meaningful Use of EHR for at least a 90-day period within the 2011 or 2012 federal fiscal year and for the entire year thereafter. Those eligible for the Medicaid program must demonstrate Meaningful Use by 2016 in order to receive incentive payments.

How can MDofficeManager help you to achieve this?

MDofficeManager medical transcription services provide tools like ADT interfaces, partial dictation with Discrete Reportable Transcription (DRT), CDA documents, HL7 interfaces, etc. These tools allow providers to maintain consistency by continuing to dictate patient notes. These dictated narrative reports can be used to maintain an up-to-date problem list of current and active diagnoses, active medications and allergy lists as a structured data. This is much more efficient compared to point-and-click boilerplate which is eating up providers’ time and attention leading to revenue loss.

Let MDofficeManager’s dedicated team and best-of-breed resources work your dictated summaries and seamlessly integrate these notes into your EHR system’s forms, fields, and records.
