Reaping the Benefits of Meaningful Use: St. Mark's Medical Center

Like hospitals everywhere, St. Mark’s Medical Center in La Grange, Texas, made a substantial investment to switch over to electronic health records (EHRs). Offsetting this expense, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) provides incentive payments for the “meaningful use” of certified EHR technology to improve patient care.

 

While demonstrating meaningful use as defined by CMS can be daunting, there’s good news: St. Mark’s Medical Center is eligible for more than $3.85 million in meaningful use incentives over five years. Hospitals that do not meet meaningful use criteria miss out on incentives and will eventually incur penalties in the form of Medicare and Medicaid fee schedule reductions.

 

Learn more about St. Mark's path to meaningful use incentives in this case study.

 

Noteworthy: CMS’ meaningful use audit program is in full swing and CHC is finding that many hospitals are less than prepared for the depth of an audit.
