This week we'll hold off on the commentary of previous posts and just put out the new numbers from the Meaningful Use Dashboard. We hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and got some time off to spend with friends and family. Now get back to work and back on the path to Meaningful Use!
- Our attestation rate has improved 4 points to 81%
- 13.1% of our Medicare MU providers have satisfied all but 2 core measures, a 4 point decrease (which is a good thing)
- 98.1% of our Medicare MU providers have satisfied 5 of 10 menu measures, a 0.2 point improvement
- 96.1% of our Medicare MU providers have satisfied the Clinical Summary measure, a 0.9 point improvement
So, the numbers are steadily rising. We’ll have a few more Meaningful Use Dashboard updates leading up to the final attestation deadline of February 29, 2012. Then, we all wait for CMS to release its 2011 MU data.
Until then, what has been your experience using an EMR--or EMR service--on the path to Meaningful Use?
