Meaningful Use Updates

Great news!  Michigan Medical Practices can still qualify for the Medicare Meaningful Use incencive available for 2012.  Installation should be planned for completion by August or September, because some testing is usually necessary before beginning the 90-day reporting period.  As noted below, the final day to begin reporting for 2012 is October 3 to take advantage of the $18,000 reimursement.  For more information, take a look at the CMS website by clicking here.
