MU3- Through Nalashaa’s lenses
The centers for Medicaid and Medicare services (CMS) published its final rule on Stage 3 of the Meaningful Use Requirements for the Electronic Health Record incentive program. Providers must adopt certified EHR technology with the new standards and requirements to qualify for a Medicare and Medicaid incentive payment and use it to achieve specific objectives. Stage 3 also promotes the use of APIs to bridge the gaps between health IT systems and to provide increased data access. An MU3 certified product is the first step towards achieving analytics in healthcare IT if requisite standards are followed and the implementation is future-proof. With many certifications under our belt, we define the easiest and smoothest path to Meaningful Use Stage 3 Certification.
