Now in its initial phase, Health and Human Service’s final rule on the “Meaningful Use” of electronic health record systems presents a host of challenges and opportunities for pathologists and laboratory medicine professionals. While eligibility concerns continue to be paramount, they must also prepare to address the needs of customers, clients, and other health care providers as these organizations strive to comply with the current and future stages of the Meaningful Use rule.

This webinar will address key challenges, including:

  • How should pathologists prepare to comply with Meaningful Use requirements?
  • If unable to qualify, can a pathologist still receive an incentive payment? If so, how?
  • What will health system stakeholders, including specialty physicians, expect from laboratory information systems?
