Are you using your electronic health record (EHR) to its fullest potential? For many physicians across Texas, the answer is no — even with the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009 providing much-needed incentives to adopt and meaningfully use an EHR.
While the immediate benefit of meaningful use is the monetary bonus, its goal is to help you make your EHR a valuable tool for providing the best possible care. This webinar will show you how, by tracking and measuring data related to quality, care coordination, and patient engagement, your practice potentially can achieve — and prove — better patient health outcomes.
Learn how to take advantage of the more complete and accurate information and better access to information your meaningfully used EHR can provide.
