Lynn is out partying in New York (otherwise known as the SRSsoft user group meeting), and so I’m going to try and fill in for her today in our continuing series of Meaningful Use Monday posts.

The great thing is that I was recently sent a meaningful use tool that was developed by Stacey Chapman, a consultant at PTS Consulting Group. Here’s a little background on Stacey:

Stacey Marie Chapman is a Principal Consultant with PTS Consulting, having previously worked as an Implementation Consultant, as well as, for eClinicalWorks. Stacey recently worked on curriculum development and instructional content for the ONC sponsored Community College Consortia to Educate Health Information Technology Professionals in Health Care Program through Bronx Community College.

PTS provides customized Electronic Health Record Project Management solutions for engagements of all size and specialty; effectively aligning IT applications with client’s process models, to achieve maximum operational efficiency and overall usability.

So, this Meaningful Use tool is built in excel and goes over all the various meaningful use requirements.(Note: Since it’s an excel file, I suggest you click the download link below since excel files don’t display very well in an embed)

You can see the full screen version of the meaningful use tool here.
