What is Meaningful Use?

Medicare and Medicaid want you not only to use an EHR, but they want it to be for "meaningful use". There are 25 criteria that must be met before you can classify it as "meaningful". These criteria have just been released and EHR companies and physicians can start certification. They plan the first EHR should be certified by the end of the year. They are still in beta testing for this certificaiton and are accepting applications in the next several weeks. The bottom line is that you have until Oct 1, 2012 to get an EHR and start sending information to Medicare to get the 44K incentive. If you wait until Oct 1st 2013, you will get 39K.



How Much Can I Receive?

If you start before Oct 1, 2012, you can receive up to $44K.
