WICHITA, Kan., Aug. 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pulse Systems, Inc., an industry-leading provider of Electronic Health Record (EHR), Practice Management and Revenue Cycle Management solutions, announced today it has published a free eBook about Meaningful Use attestation. Meaningful Use, one of the most important decisions facing eligible professionals (EPs) today, sets specific objectives that EPs and hospitals must achieve in order to qualify for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Incentive Programs.
Pulse published the eBook to help guide EPs through the complexities of Meaningful Use. The interactive training guide provides information about how to use certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT), such as Pulse Systems' 2014 Certified Complete EHR, to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of healthcare, ultimately resulting in better patient outcomes. This eBook guides providers through CMS' regulations for meeting Meaningful Use Stage 1 and Stage 2 in an easy-to-read, interactive, and engaging format. The free eBook also explains the purpose behind Meaningful Use, defines its core objectives and clinical quality measures, outlines steps EPs need to take in order to attest and improve overall patient care, and more.
"This Meaningful Use eBook is an example of the various educational tools and services we offer our current and prospective clients to improve their practices through our best-in-class healthcare information technology solutions," said Jeff Burton, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pulse Systems. "As we endeavor to simplify this intricate and complicated regulatory framework, we simultaneously demonstrate how Pulse's Certified Complete EHR and superior Professional Services teams help EPs earn financial incentives by attesting for Meaningful Use."
The Pulse Complete EHR, version 4.2, is compliant with the ONC 2014 Edition criteria and was certified as a Complete EHR on August 7, 2013, by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ACB, in accordance with the eligible provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The ONC 2014 Edition criteria supports both Stage 1 and Stage 2 Meaningful Use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
