eCareSoft Drives Hospital Visibility to Stimulus Funds With Meaningful Use Scorecard™
Date:8/9/2011

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- eCareSoft, Inc., a leader in cloud technology solutions for hospitals, announced the industry's first Meaningful Use monitoring and tracking tool tied to an electronic health records system, eCS Meaningful Use (MU) Scorecard™.

"We quickly realized that visibility to Meaningful Use achievement would be vital to our clients in achieving their targeted goals," stated Jorge Luis Camargo, VP of Technology Innovation at eCareSoft. "MU Scorecard provides real-time, detailed tracking of clinical achievement across multiple hospitals from a single dashboard," added Camargo.

MU Scorecard™ is a customizable reporting tool that tracks adoption of electronic health records and percent of achievement toward Meaningful Use measures. The scorecard uses traffic light indicators to highlight achievement by facility, department, Meaningful Use measure, patient number and encounter.

"As a hospital system, the ability to monitor our success or failure in achieving Meaningful Use measures allows us to take proactive steps to correct prior to CMS reporting deadlines," stated Joe White, CFO of Central Texas Hospital, one of the first hospitals to implement MU Scorecard into their EHR application.  "This tool lets us know exactly where we are at all times in this process," added White. "The MU Scorecard also provides an audit trail of accomplishments should we ever need to refer back to it," concluded White.

MU Scorecard™ is designed as an extension of eCareSoft's electronic health records solution for hospitals. The reporting functionality is made available within the application to hospital administrators and their assigned department heads using roles-based methodology. The tool is being made available as part of the basic EHR system for the next year, providing all eCareSoft clients with the ability to track, monitor and adjust their progress toward achieving and maintaining Meaningful Use criteria.
