Final Rules for Electronic Health Records Stage 3 Meaningful Use Update

Duration: 60 Minutes
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued the final rules for implementing Stage 3 "meaningful use" (MU) standards for the Electronic Health Record Incentive Program. This program adjusts payments to Medicare and Medicaid providers for implementing and "meaningfully using" (or not) interoperable electronic health records (EHR) systems. This means that doctors and hospitals will need to evaluate how to meet the tougher requirements but benefit from reduced requirements for certain standards.
