Finding Meaning in a Flawed Meaningful Use Program: Pathways Toward Physician Compliance
November 6, 2015•10 min
Host: Jennifer Caudle, DO
The Meaningful Use program from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) was designed to help make electronic health records fully functional, enabling better coordination of care for physicians and more transparency of information for patients. However, the rollout of this program proved to be far rockier than anticipated, as errors and communication gaps from EHR systems led to practice penalties despite heavy investments and best intentions toward compliance. What will the future hold for this dysfunctional program on a national scale, and how can clinicians find success in their respective practices amidst these challenges? Joining host Jennifer Caudle, DO at the American Osteopathic Association's annual medical education conference, OMED2015 in Orlando, FL to discuss strategies for better EHR integration is Laura Wooster, Vice President of Public Policy for the AOA.
