Slide content:MU Operationalized - 2 (Warning: Information overload!) For EPs and EHs, there are three requirements to receive MU funds: Meet Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) Original set in 2011, superseded by new set in 2014 for all stages of MU Meet standards designated by Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) 5
Slide notes:In addition to meeting the meaningful use objectives, there are clinical quality measures, or CQMs, that had to be met as part of the three requirements. In the 2011 release of the original CQMs, there was one set of CQMs for eligible hospitals and another for eligible providers. These were superseded in 2014 by expanded sets of clinical quality measures. No matter what stage an EP or EH was in, starting in 2014, all those seeking remuneration through the meaningful use program needed to meet the new clinical quality measures. The third requirement for qualifying to receive meaningful use reimbursement funds was meeting standards designated by ONC via certified electronic health records. 5
