Data Source: ONC CRM Database (March 3, 2012). Rural Hospitals and non-priority hospitals did not report any MU Measure Barriers.

Users may select multiple measure-specific issues as barriers within one report, therefore, these numbers may overestimate the total number of Barrier reports for Measure-specific issues.

Data Source: ONC CRM Database (March 3, 2012). Private Practices with 11+ providers, Public Hospitals, Rural Hospitals, and non-priority hospitals did not report any MU Measure Barriers. Specialty Practices did not report any Menu-set specific Barrier Issues. Users may select multiple measure-specific issues as barriers within one report, therefore, these numbers may overestimate the total number of Barrier reports for Measure-specific issues.


Implications for overcoming challenges and barriers moving forward
Implications for Overcoming Challenges and Barriers Moving Forward

  • Health centers will require assistance with more sophisticated and costly functionalities such as e-Rx, Patient Portals, HIE, etc.

  • Patient Centered Medical Home intersects with Meaningful Use work and it will be beneficial to work on these goals together in lieu of silos

  • Stage 2 MU brings new requirements and criteria that require development of new tools and education materials to assist CHCs (e.g. patient portal and interoperability requirements)
