Psychiatry Meaningful Use Videos

I probably should post these on my EMR and EHR videos website, but since they can’t be embedded I figured I’d just post about them on here.

The company Valant Medical Solutions has posted 4 videos that go through the various meaningful use requirements. Of course, I’m sure that many of you are thinking that’s not all that interesting. Plus, the videos are quite specific to the Valant EHR solution. You’re right on both accounts.

There are a number of reasons I’m posting them anyway. First, I always find it interesting to see how an EHR vendor is trying to help their doctors achieve meaningful use. Second, the principles of meaningful use are the same regardless of EHR vendor so even if the details are specific to the Valant EHR you can still learn about the details of meaningful use. Third (and maybe most important), these are the first videos that I’ve seen address meaningful use for psychiatry.

Hopefully all you psychiatrists out there that want to show meaningful use of your EHR will take a look and get some value out of these videos.
