Reminder: March 31 deadline for physicians to submit for MU3 and related payment

The PSP’s EMR Post-Implementation Support to achieve Meaningful Use Level 3 (MU3) is drawing to a close. Physicians are reminded to complete their Objective Data Dashboard (ODD) report submissions and related payment requests by end-of-day on March 31st.

There are two key steps to complete the support and to receive post-implementation support payments by March 31st:

1.    To access the $1,000 advance and 6 Main-Pro C credits for participating in the support cycle:

•    Complete the Progress Assessment with your PAC, who will review the status of the support you have received and progress toward MU3, and help you to resolve any remaining gaps/needs.

2.    To receive the remainder of the $3,000 funding:

•    Confirm meaningful use via the ODD in your EMR and submit the report to The dashboard focuses on ensuring data consistency and sufficiency for QI and exchange with other providers ("interoperability").

If you haven’t had the chance to run the ODD with your PAC or you feel you would benefit from a more in-depth discussion with your peers, please consider attending any of the upcoming 16 local ODD User Groups planned around the province.

Achieving foundational use of EMR is critical to enabling our collective goals for quality improvement, chronic disease management, seamless patient transitions, and shared care. Whether it is for streamlining your referral process, creating automated diabetes reminders, managing practice revenue, enhancing patient access, or reflecting on your patient panel's priority patients, the integrity of our chart data will be important.

If you have any questions, please contact your PAC or e-mail
