Helping to define “meaningful use”

Helping to define “meaningful use”

Office Practicum user Sue Kressly, MD has the opportunity to help define “meaningful use” for Pennsylvania Pediatricians.  As many states are now trying to determine who will qualify for ARRA funding under the Medicaid program and are defining what they think meaningful use “should” look like, pediatricians should take every opportunity to help shape these programs.

If you are interested in helping to shape these programs, Dr. Kressly suggests you contact your state AAP chapter and/or your state Medicaid program and ask whether there is an opportunity for pediatricians to get involved. In addition, she is willing to share testimony and ideas with any interested parties. Dr. Kressly can be reached at skressly@kresslypediatrics.com
