Prevention Coordination through Meaningful Use

SM_FacebookSM_TwitterSM_LinkedinSM_Pinterest
Quality Innovation Network – Quality Improvement Organizations (QIN-QIOs) across the nation are working with Regional Extension Centers (RECs) to improve prevention coordination through Meaningful Use (MU) of health information technology (HIT). Quality improvement specialists from the atom Alliance will collaborate with RECs to showcase proven interventions that result in primary care providers successfully meeting the requirements of the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. The overall aim is to improve both quality of and care transitions through health information exchange (HIE).

Quality improvement specialists will work with providers and offer targeted technical assistance to those experiencing challenges in successfully meeting the Medicare EHR Incentive Program requirements.

Meaningful Use
The Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs provide financial incentives for the “meaningful use” of certified EHR technology.
