One thought on “Infographic :Making Sense of Meaningful Use | HIT Consultant

  1. I only know of two practices in South Jersey that are doing EHR. One, a husband and wife OD team with two offices has been slowly wending their way towards meaningful use for over a year and are still not there after expending a tremendous amount of time and effort. They seem to be happy with their EHR but it has been a long, hard, and expensive process. Can the lone OD afford the time and money it costs to do EHR’s, especially knowing that there is not one system out there that is turn-key and simple to use? From where I am standing, I think You have to have a rich father to help you pay for this if you are practicing by yourself!
