Meaningful Use: BS or Not?

To achieve meaningful use, EHR users must jump through a lot of hoops, at least 23 to be exact. Are the hoops just busy work or are they worthy in creating a safer medical environment for our patients? I have been an EHR user for several years, long before MU came to be. I have been a meaningful user, ie I do all 23 hoops, for the past few months. What do I think? I think some of the objectives are worthy and others are busy work. On the balance I think MU is good and worthy. Dr Schoor
