The Dark Report is hosting a Webinar titled, “Meaningful Use: Phase 1 Lessons Learned and How to Prepare a Lab for Phase 2 Requirements” on September 21. Meaningful Use phase 2 criteria is about to become effective. Consequently, clinical laboratories and anatomic pathology groups will soon be tasked by office-based physicians to help them use EMRs to qualify for federal incentive payments.

This is problematic, however, because clinical laboratories and pathology groups continue to be overwhelmed by physician requests to help them implement EMRs and qualify for phase 1 criteria. But there is an advantage, too. Meaningful Use phase 2 criteria raises the bar for how physicians must electronically interface with laboratories, particularly for lab test ordering and lab test results reporting. Labs that do it correctly can win new clients while labs that can’t deliver face the risk of losing best-referring physician-clients.

Listeners will find out why changes to EMR Meaningful Use requirements will affect the way labs must integrate with the EMRs of office-based physicians. Experts will reveal what they’ve learned about integrating labs to the new EMRs in phase 1. In addition, attendees will get valuable updates on the latest Meaningful Use requirements as well as acquire tactics for successfully dealing with them.
