Cardiologists embracing meaningful use program so far

More than half of cardiologists — roughly 55% — plan to participate in the meaningful use program, according to a recent survey of American College of Cardiology (ACC) members.

The survey, taken in July and published in September, notes that 34% of ACC members have registered for the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs and that roughly half who have registered have completed meaningful use attestation. As CMIO reports, this ranks cardiology third among medical specialties when it comes to meaningful use program participation.

For medical specialists, reaping the benefits of the meaningful use program can be quite a challenge, since not all meaningful use criteria, and only a handful of the clinical quality measures, apply to certain specialties. However, the ACC survey seems to suggest that cardiologists are up to that challenge.
