Progress Toward Meaningful Use

April 23, 2012

The CITIA-SC Center has offered education, consultation, and support to providers to help practices achieve meaningful use, implement the EHR features and functions that will allow them to fully use the EHR and improve the quality of care patients receive. First, a broad education and outreach strategy was used to provide ongoing education on the ARRA HITECH Act, CMS EHR adoption incentives, requirements for meaningful use, and EHR clinical best practices. These educational sessions were offered statewide at venues coordinated by South Carolina Area Health Education Consortium (SC AHEC), South Carolina Primary Health Care Association (SCPHCA) and South Carolina Office of Rural Health (SCORH).  Educational sessions were offered via in-person education programs, live and recorded webinars and informational tools and resources available on the CITIA-SC Center website.
