Meaningful Minute by QuantiaMD

Stage 1 Meaningful Use is happening.  The start of attestation is just days away.  The first checks for Eligible Professionals will be sent 4-6 weeks following attestation.  Now is the time for all EPs to understand the process for using certified EHR technology to achieve meaningful use.

As the Meaningful Use expert for HITECH Answers, I’ve been asked by QuantiaMD to present their “Meaningful Minute,” an ongoing series of one-minute videos aimed at helping physicians understand what it means to be a meaningful user of certified EHR technology. On the surface it seems explaining the complexities of meaningful use through a one minute lens would be difficult but it’s been a great surprise to see just how effective these segments are in delivering quality content in a short timeframe, a tremendous value for physicians with little time. You can view the first segment here: Meaningful Minute
