With stage 2, Meaningful Use kicks up a notch

April 16, 2014

Meaningful Use, the federal program that provides financial incentives for eligible providers, hospitals and clinics that make substantial use of electronic health records, entered stage 2 on April 1.

Under this phase Providence hospitals and clinics must demonstrate even greater use of Epic than in the first stage. See this quick-reference poster for stage 2 requirements.

As part of stage 2, Providence is releasing inpatient lab results to MyChart for patients who have been admitted to our emergency departments. Find out the timing for these releases and get an overview of how patients can use MyChart:

Several other resources are available on Providence’s Meaningful Use intranet page. Contact Dana Montgomery for more information on eligible hospitals, and Jenni Barlow for information on eligible professionals.
