Meaningful Use

Not long ago I became a proud parent of a very rambunctious puppy named Jack. As a family, we decided that Jack would enjoy a dog house. Now I’ve never been built anything from scratch before but since I have a step-father that is a handy wood worker I thought even I could do this.

This process got me thinking about the meaningful use incentives for physician practices and how it’s like building any solid structure. And once you set your mind to building, you have to see it through to the end.

The first step is willingness.
I needed to commit to building this dog house and to do that, I needed to find out what was required – just like your office needs to know what is involved with demonstrating Meaningful Use before you can commit to the incentive program. For instance, make sure to review the meaningful use objectives, required measures and Electronic Healthcare (EHR) incentives in order to prepare.

Road blocks should be anticipated.
The building process can reveal unpredictable obstacles. For example, I may not have the right tools or enough wood to complete the project. Some of the steps to building may be difficult and unattractive. This may be the case for your practice as well. But be assured there are many resources to help you along the way to a successful outcome. Some of them are Sage Meaningful Use Webinars, FAQs, and white papers that are available on the Sage Support Center and www.SageHealth.com.

Enjoy your success
I’m proud to say that Jack loves his new dog house and is reaping the benefits of a warm home with a sound structure. Just like me, with proper planning and assistance you can reach your goals. And remember, we are here to help.
