Until now, mobility and its value to usability in Meaningful Use has been implied but not demonstrated. Meaningful Use means different things to the Patient, Caregiver, Facilities, and technology; but whether or not Meaningful Use transitions into usability is a key concern for Providers and Facilities responsible for measuring up to Meaningful Use.
The Goals of Meaningful Use:
- Improve quality, safety and efficiency of patient care
- Improve care coordination
- Enagage patients and families
- Ensure adequate privacy and security for personal health information
- Improve population and public health
Meaningful Use is not a technology problem, but rather an initiative focused on effectively using technology to capture and share accurate information; to improve health and promote better outcomes.
