EHR Incentives Center

Welcome to the EHR Incentives Center, where you can find everything you need to know about obtaining your Medicare / Medicaid incentives for using a certified EHR. 

Meaningful Use

“Meaningful Use” (MU) is the provider’s ability to demonstrate that they are actively using the capabilities in their certified EHR as set forth by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). ). Note: CMS is the government body tasked with establishing meaningful use criteria for EHR software.

Becoming a “Meaningful User”

Providers who have been using their EHR software or EMR software for at least 90 days will be able to attest to their meaningful use beginning in April 2011.

MedicsDocAssistant EHR is able to handle Stage 1’s 15 core requirements as well as any 5 of the 10 optional requirements since the system is certified for MU.  MedicsDocAssistant V.7.0 is also certified by ICSA Labs™ as a complete EHR for Stage 2 MU helping to ensure your physicians obtain the maximum incentives to which they are entitled.

The system’s built-in Medics MU Dashboard helps physicians track their MU progress, allowing for incentive attestation as soon as each has achieved MU.  The ADS MU Team is also available to assist with questions on registering the system with CMS, attestation, and any other MU-related topics.
