MU Requirements

Meaningful Use Measures:

At least 10% of all unique patients are provided timely electronic access to their health information.


Certification Criteria for EHR:

Enable a user to provide patients with online access to their clinical information, including, at a minimum, lab test results, problem list, medication list, medication allergy list, immunizations, and procedures.

Minimal Requirement from a USE Case Perspective

  1. Secure Login
  2. Admin function - Creation and ability to administer said logins
  3. Ability to control authorized others access in some way, expiration time or

similar

  1. Logging of logins and releases of information
  2. Generate reports (PDFs and CCR/CCD)
  3. Provide download of above PDF/CCR/CCD
  4. Patient request for changes to the record

Proposed Solutions

  1. Create a trimmed back version of OpenEMR that only allows access to the Patient information via a separate login system controlled by the Physician from their servers.
  2. Create a CMS based (Drupul or Miniweb for example) that only allows access to the Patient information via a separate login system controlled by the Physician from their servers.
  3. Use Google Health API and their portal by creating a common interface to the CCD/CCR records. (see below for details)
  4. Use Microsoft Health Vault and their portal by creating a common interface to the CCD/CCR records.
  5. Use MiSys open source solution for the portal
