ShareNote.com EHR Certification and What it Means to You
ShareNote.com Receives Ambulatory EHR Certification
ShareNote.com has acheived modular EHR Certification. This means providers can use the program with others to attest to stage 1 meaningful use requirements and qualify for Medicare financial incentives for doing so.
The ShareNote team is excited and proud to have achieved modular certification and are looking forward to receiving full ambulatory certification in the very near future.
What is EHR Certification?
On February 17, 2009, the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) was signed by President Barack Obama. Physicians and providers can qualify for up to $44,000 in Medicare incentives upon demonstration of “meaningful use” of a certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) beginning in 2011 under the ARRA.
Why EHR Certification?
- Accurate and complete information about a patient’s health. That way they can give the best possible care, whether during a routine visit or a medical emergency.
- The ability to better coordinate the care they give. This is especially important if a patient has a serious medical condition.
- A way to securely share information with patients and their family caregivers over the Internet, for patients who opt for this convenience. This means patients and their families can more fully take part in decisions about their health care.
- Information to help doctors diagnose health problems sooner, reduce medical errors, and provide safer care at lower costs.
