Percentage Based MU Measures

Eligible professions must meet the 15 "core set" meaningfule use objectives. If this is not possible due to specialty specific patient volumes 5 may be deferred from the optional "menu set"
The Percentage Based Measures Checklist provides the users of the Chart(x) E.H.R. a detailed description of the numerator and denominator inputs necessary for the Chart(x) E.H.R. to be used in a meaningful way.
All of the data in this checklist is derived directly from the government provided resources in regards to Meaningful Use, Clinical Quality Measures, and PQRS programs.
The comprehensive checklist will provide the user with a brief summary of the objective and a structured table describing how to use the Chart(x) E.H.R. to accomplish the objectives.
It is important to understand that the Chart(x) E.H.R. automatically calculates all of the measures required for reporting from the data sets entered thoughout the patient visit. It is important that each step of the patient visit is completed in the Chart(x) E.H.R. to properly generate the final report.
Please use this Comprehensive Checklist as a training tool and guide to best accomplish Meaningful Use and Quality Reporting with the Chart(x) E.H.R.
