A simple "meaningful use" table that outlines and defines the core and menu set measures for EPs

When you search on the CMS website for information about the meaningful use of electronic health records (EHRs), you'll get bombarded by a ton of links (some which don't work) and 276 pages describing the meaningful use rules. When you look for consolidated information summarizing all the meaningful use requirements, you may quickly get frustrated. If you keep digging around, you may eventually find this PDF titled, "Eligible Professional Meaningful Use Table of Contents Core and Menu Set Measures."

This PDF includes hyperlinks that take you to specific definitions of terms. So, if you're confused about the definition of "clinical quality measures" or "clinical decision support rule," you'll find those definitions quickly and easily by using this PDF.

There are 15 core measures and 10 menu set measures for eligible professionals (EPs). Are you achieving meaningful use?
