EMR Implementation - Nurse Staffing Technology for the EMR Age

The deadline for certified Electronic Medical Record* (EMR) implementation and compliance is 2014, a mandate of the federal HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) Act passed in 2009. The good news is billions of dollars have been made available to eligible healthcare providers to help offset cost of EMR implementation and adopting meaningful use measures for EMRs.

What defines Meaningful Use?

Meaningful use is a broad term that refers to utilizing EMRs in a manner that improves the coordination of patient care, reduces medical errors and enhances the interoperability of medical data and functions. Though certified EMR software will play a vital role in achieving meaningful use mandates, few things will be more important than having a knowledgeable nurse staff on hand to follow through on EMR training and technologies. 


Candidate Direct can help you achieve meaningful use
