Meaningful Use Myths (Part 4)

PIMSY EHR / EMR for mental health therapists true/false

Meaningful Use Myth # 4:

"MU is too complicated; I know there's money available, but there's no way I'll be able to cut through all that red tape to get it"

This one could be true or false, depending on the amount of time, energy and MU (Meaningful Use) resources available to you. The important thing to keep in mind is that you don't have to go it alone.

Yes, MU is complicated. Yes, there is a lot of red tape and administrative hoops to jump through. Yes, you must be very careful to dot your i's and cross your t's, or you may find yourself paying the incentive funds back after a failed audit.

But with all of that money up for grabs, why not just hire someone to take care of this stuff for you? An MU consultant can take the stress of these tasks off your plate, ensure everything is completed accurately, and should be more than paid for by the incentive funds they help you secure. 

Meaningful Use is not a undertaking to be taken lightly. It is a big deal and should be accordingly respected - but with the help of a qualified MU consultant, you can successfully complete this formidable challenge - and receive the incentive benefits.

Meaningful Use Myth # 3: "I'm already using PIMSY [or another EHR], so I don't need to worry about getting on a system or doing anything else"

Meaningful Use Myth # 2: "Meaningful Use doesn't affect me because I'm in mental & behavioral health / substance abuse / psychiatry"

Meaningful Use Myth # 1: "I've heard that CMS is delaying Meaningful Use and that the 7/1/14 deadline no longer applies"
