"Meaningful Use"

Read a feature article George Catuogno wrote in Healthcare Ledger back in June 2009 titled "HITECH Act Promises EMR Funding to Clinicians with Meaningful Use". George eloquently lays the framework as to why Discrete Reportable Transcription (DRT) can play an important role enabling the successful adoption of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) technology.

The article touches on the pitfalls to EMR implementation but also describes how along with human intelligence, discrete data paired with Natural Language Processing (NLP) can address many of the common setbacks. By way of referencing numerous studies and examples, George demonstrates how a DRT enabled EMR accelerates adoption, eases implementation and adds value by enhancing capabilities.
