Puzzled About Meaningful Use? This Hip-Hop Tune Has The Answers

Spent countless hours worrying over meeting Meaningful Use standards?  Dr. HITECH feels your pain. HITECH, otherwise known as Germantown, MD-based Dr. Ross Martin, MD, MHA, has produced an educational video which offers you the highlights — and we’re serious about this — of Stage 1 Meaningful Use requirements.

As you’ll see, however, Dr. Martin isn’t a conventional lecturer. As Dean of The American College of Informatimuscology, he keeps it real with a hip-hop tune dubbed “The Meaningful Yoose Rap.” (By the way, you’re interested in becoming a fellow of the college, Dr. HITECH invites you to submit musical samples.)

Check out the video and tell us what you think.  Personally, I think a little humor never hurts, even when it comes to a serious topic like MU. But hey, some people just don’t know how to have fun…

  • Don’t know what possessed him to make this, but its a hoot.

    That’s no set or backdrop. It’s shot on site, as it were, at the Capitol and he may be the first unicycle on the steps of the Humphrey Building, HHS’ HQ.

    Loved the tourists on Segways!

  • Thanks for posting and for the review!

    What possessed me, you ask? This is what I do to fit my writing/creating habit into my life during this intense time as we all try to transform helalthcare through the meaningful use of EHRs. And it’s always nice to give folks a break from their own workaday world – even if it is only for three minutes.

    Music can be incredibly educational if you take the time to use it that way. How else do so many people who watched Saturday morning cartoons in the 70s know the preamble of the Constitution by heart? Schoolhouse Rock rocks!
