SRS Meaningful Use Workflow
The SRS productivity-focused approach to meaningful use enables physicians to incorporate the EHR incentive requirements into their workflow without negatively impacting efficiency or the way they practice medicine.
The meaningful use workflow charts below illustrate how meaningful use is achievable through a practical and efficient use of staff resources combined with our productivity-focused EHR. The implications of demonstrating meaningful use vary by specialty: for most specialists, the available exclusions make it relatively easy for a physician to comply; for primary-care physicians, there is more to do to meet the requirements. However, the workflow charts illustrate how everyone can achieve meaningful use efficiently by capitalizing on the available exclusions and shifting the bulk of the burden away from the physician to the staff.

Regardless of specialty, physicians have four meaningful use responsibilities:
- ePrescribing—SRS ePrescribing addresses a significant portion of the overall requirements and delivers increased productivity in the process.
- Maintaining a problem list for patients—only just a few clicks with SRS EHR.
- Considering clinical decision support alerts—SRS makes it easy—the alerts appear on the SRS desktop at the point of care.
- Reporting on clinical-quality measures. For many specialists, there are no—or few—relevant clinical quality measures. However, SRS facilitates the required reporting by tracking all of the data so that most of the work is done in the normal course of the visit (documenting problems and ePrescribing).
As illustrated, the rest of the meaningful use measures can be handled by clinical and support staff, and some measures are excludable. So, with the right EHR and the right workflow, meaningful use is definitely achievable by specialists and primary-care physicians alike.Find out more about SRS EHR. Contact us today.
