Meaningful Use

Meaningful Use of a certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) is required for participation in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program and to meet Hospital Meaningful Use requirements. But Meaningful Use is challenging and changing constantly. The Kentucky REC helps healthcare organizations stay on top of changing program requirements. We offer support services for physician practices and for hospitals. We also offer a Mock Audit service to protect your organization from costly mistakes during a program audit.

Meaningful Use—Providers

Kentucky REC helps providers make progress toward Meaningful Use in the most efficient and effective way, which translates into lower costs of implementation, assurance of maximum reimbursements, and protection against penalties and costly audits.

Meaningful Use—Hospitals

Kentucky REC provides Eligible Hospitals (EHs) and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) with efficient and effective Meaningful Use advisory services to guide them through the multifaceted environment unique to health information technology.

Meaningful Use—Mock Audit

An Eligible Professional or  Eligible Hospital attesting to receive an incentive payment may be subject to a Meaningful Use audit. We offer a Mock Audit service that will help evaluate your level of preparedness so that when you are audited, you are ready.
