re: High EHR Usage: Driven By Need Or Regulations?
I tend to agree with Michelle Holmes on this case. I have seen first-hand how some providers tend to just go through the motions to attest for MU Stage 1 requirements. The example of the patient plans being thrown directly into the garbage and not being given to the patient or not being explained to the patient properly probably happens in a lot of organizations especially when they are first beginning their implementation process. Many of the measures being collected by CMS may be manufactured or may not be an accurate measure of better patient care or of higher efficiency.
