Meaningful use (MU)


Meaningful use (MU), in a health information technology (HIT) context, defines the use of electronic health records (EHR) and related technology within a healthcare organization. Eligible Providers can receive up to $44,000 in Medicare and $63,750 in Medicaid by fulfilling the requirements set forth by CMS. To receive the maximum reimbursement, physicians and hospitals must achieve stage 1 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.

Technosoft offers an unparalleled opportunity for the care community to modernize itself for larger effectiveness, quality and cost control.
