TMC Meeting Transitions of Care Measure for Meaningful Use

Tucson Medical Center attested in July 2014 for Stage 2 of meaningful use of its electronic medical record, one of 75 hospital to hit this milestone at the time and one of 200 by Sept. 30, the end of the federal fiscal year. The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology asked the hospital to discuss in a video how it hit the target for transitions of care, one of the more difficult measures facing hospitals nationwide.

This blog is one in a series as part of an Oct. 22 celebration at Tucson Medical Center for successfully attesting to the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for meeting Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements of its electronic medical record. This success was a great and collaborative effort across many areas of the hospital. It represents another milestone achieved toward improved patient care and safety.
