The Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Records Incentive Program, also known as Meaningful Use, defines a framework that permits eligible nephrologists to earn financial incentives by demonstrating Meaningful Use of a certified electronic health record (EHR). This program, established by the HITECH Act as part of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, creates the opportunity for nephrologists to collect $44,000 and $64,750 over a five- to six-year timeframe depending on the path selected. Acumen customers have a high rate of success with meaningful use.
The framework consists of three fundamental steps:
- Acquiring a certified EHR
- Using the certified EHR to demonstrate meaningful use
- Conveying the information to CMS
