Creating a certification program for Meaningful Use was the obvious missing piece of the huge jigsaw puzzle that must be solved to understand the full process of EHR adoption.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
4Medapproved, Inc., a leading provider of online education and certification resources for providers and professionals in all stages of the health IT implementation process, announced today its latest course offering, Certified Meaningful Use Professional (CMUP).
The new 4Med CMUP course provides comprehensive online training on how Eligible Professionals (EPs) and Eligible Hospitals (EHs) under the CMS EHR Incentive Program can meet Stage 1 and Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements. EPs and EHs need to successfully attest to demonstrating meaningful use of certified electronic health record (EHR) technology to qualify for this incentive program. The 4Med CMUP program helps students understand the details of each meaningful use requirement including those related to Clinical Quality Measures, HIPAA, and Health Information Exchange and interoperability. The program also reviews the differences between the Medicare and Medicaid programs, and provides strategies for EHR adoption.
“We have rolled out a number of successful online courses that provide our students with an incredible depth of knowledge on implementation of an EHR system and meeting HIPAA compliance requirements.” said Wendy Whitmore, CIO of 4Medapproved. “Creating a certification program for Meaningful Use was the obvious missing piece of the huge jigsaw puzzle that must be solved to understand the full process of EHR adoption.”
The 4Med CMUP course is designed as a learning platform for EPs, EHs, consultants and other health information technology professionals. The 4Med educational approach incorporates text lessons, multimedia content, and review assessments, along with hands-on practice sessions utilizing a live, certified EHR solution.
Successful completion of this course awards a Certification in Meaningful Use which has been reviewed and authorized by the 4Medapproved professional medical and technical advisory boards.
