Heart disease is the number one cause of death in Americans, claiming responsibility for 1 in every 4 deaths, according to the CDC. Cardiology is a specialized field that has distinct requirements for practice management and electronic medical record (EMR) software. EMR software is a key element in efficiently managing a cardiology practice and PQRS reporting.
In 2018, all eligible professionals will need to meet stage 3 meaningful use requirements. These requirements are technology focused and aim to increase engagement between the physician and the patient. Preparing for PQRS now will not only preserve the existing relationship you have with your patients, it will dramatically improve it.
