Congratulations to UNC’s first “meaningful user” of WebCIS

On Friday, May 18, Practice Quality and Innovation (PQI) submitted UNC’s first Meaningful Use (MU) attestation on behalf of Dr. Don Spencer of Family Medicine for the Eligible Physician (EP) Incentive Program.

We commend Dr. Spencer, as UNC’s VP of Ambulatory Care and Associate Chief Medical Informatics Officer, for leading the way.

We’re excited to have finally reached this milestone, but we still have work to do to meet our FY12 HCS organizational quality goal of attesting for 35 percent of UNC EPs by June 30. We plan to meet this goal through a combination of attestations for the Medicare and Medicaid incentive programs.

Attestation under the Medicare program requires meeting and reporting 26 MU measures. The Medicaid program requires attesting to recent upgrades of our EHR, WebCIS, to meet MU requirements; however, Medicaid EPs must still meet MU measures to earn internal incentive payments. PQI Project Coaches will be working with EPs to complete the attestation process for both programs.

Below is a list of 63 EPs who are currently meeting all MU measures.  Congratulations to these providers and clinical areas on their success so far.
