Meaningful Use Support"It felt like someone threw us a life preserver."

Registering and attesting for Meaningful Use can be an intimidating and exhausting experience. But with the right help, support and relief is well within reach.

Are you a primary care physician who has implemented an EMR but has not yet met Meaningful Use?

Are you interested in attesting for the Medicare or Medicaid incentive dollars in the next 6 months?

Do you practice in any of the following Illinois counties:

  • Cook (outside of Chicago)
  • DuPage
  • Kankakee
  • Lake
  • Will

If you answered "yes" to all three questions, you may be eligible for grant dollars that would assist you with Meaningful Use implementation and attestation.

If you're not eligible, and know someone who might be, please forward this email on to them.

The regional extension center, IL-HITREC, has a few slots available for Meaningful Use assistance for providers that qualify. This is a matched grant, so for less than $1,000, you could receive support that would lead to attestation and ultimately, the incentive payment up to $21,250 for Medicaid and up to $18,000 for Medicare.

Health Directions has been working with IL-HITREC for over a year and has attested more than 150 providers who subsequently received payment.

If you are interested in learning more, please click the button below to complete a short form to share your contact information--or--contact Sole Prete in our office at 312-218-2929.

Please act now. This is time sensitive as they are trying to fill the limited slots within the next 10 days.
