The stimulus dollars in ARRA have encouraged healthcare providers to plan EMR implementation and seek eligibility for that money under Meaningful Use (MU) incentives. However, achieving MU and its objectives of better clinical outcomes and reduced healthcare costs is just the beginning. The real journey to a data-driven high performance healthcare organization starts with enterprise-level integrated management of clinical, operational and financial performance which will maximize the ROI for healthcare IT projects and bring providers in line with the goals that have been set for the next few years under wide-ranging healthcare reforms in the U.S. MU is the trigger for these massive changes to come-not the destination.
On Thursday, Oct. 21, Infosys Technologies and Healthcare Informatics will bring you a live presentation that looks at the world of MU and beyond. Expert speakers will discuss success strategies for using ARRA MU mandates as catalyst for implementing EHR technology that achieve high levels of clinician buy in while laying the groundwork for the next steps toward high performance healthcare delivery.
