Sometimes frustrated by meaningful use? "Hear ye, Hear ye!" Let your voice be heard.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid released the proposed rules for Meaningful Use Stage 3 last Friday, March 20, as well as the corresponding certification requirements for EHR vendors/developers.
We'd like to know what you think about the MU3 proposed rules. But the document is 400 pages long, so we are holding a webinar (choose only one) to provide an overview of the Stage 3 requirements and to solicit comments/feedback that will be incorporated into our submission of comments for these proposed rules. The CMS comment period will close on May 29, 2015 so we will be asking for your input, comments and opinions prior to that date.
You only need to participate in one of these webinars. The registration links are below:

How much do you move during the day? What do you eat? How do you manage stress?
If you’re an employee who sits at your desk all day, you’re most like burning about 51 calories an hour, depending on your weight.
If you’re a nurse in a hospital working the day shift, you’re walking an average of five miles a day.
Studies show that those of us who sit all day are at a 40 percent higher risk for chronic diseases and early death.
“We spend one-third of our waking hours at work, and our lifestyles and health are greatly influenced by our work environment and our behaviors during the workday,” says Anne Dunn, Wellness Program Coordinator at Van Wert County Hospital.
