Thank you for making our Meaningful Use Survival Seminar Series such a HUGE success.

The turn-out was excellent at each of the 6 events across the Bluegrass:

• Bardstown (March 15): 50 attendees
• Paducah (March 22): 75 attendees
• Hazard (April 12): 50 attendees
• Bowling Green (April 19): 85 attendees
• Somerset (May 10): 70 attendees
• Lexington (May 31): 110 attendees

The seminars provided informational sessions on hot topics in Health Information Technology such as Meaningful Use Stage 2, Privacy and Security, and Meaningful Use Audits.

To kick off each event, local healthcare providers and hospitals were recognized for their leadership in the nationwide transition toward an electronically-enabled health care system.

The Kentucky REC is pleased to welcome these practices and hospitals into an exclusive group of leaders – the Meaningful Use Vanguard (MUV).  MUV is an initiative of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC), and is designed to honor, thank, and bring together clinicians who have successfully implemented electronic health records. MUVers (members of the MUV program) serve as local leaders and advisors in this national initiative.

 Congratulations to all award winners!  We are so proud of your efforts!
