Meaningful Use

Merge Healthcare's Guide to Meaningful Use

With MU2, the program is now moving more in the direction of diagnostic imaging. For example, MU2 rules state that 10%+ of all scans and tests that result in an image will need to be more accessible through MU-certified EHR technology. For hospitals, this means that in order to electronically share images with referring physicians, you need an enterprise imaging strategy
in place.
In addition, the thresholds for many measures have increased for MU2. Imaging centers that have not yet attested to Stage 1 should start now so they are comfortable and confident with their EHR and workflow as MU2 begins.

MU is part of the EHR incentive program, which is designed to stimulate the use of technology in healthcare. Funded by the HITECH Act, the program enables providers who adopt electronic health records and meet MU requirements to earn reimbursements and avoid Medicare penalties.

Merge solutions can empower physicians to meet MU Stage 2 requirements. See below full list of MU-certified Merge solutions utilized in Stage 2.
