By July 31, 2013, 1,115 providers, 62% (approximately 822 of 1,332) of CAHs and 77% (approximately 293 of 383) of small, rural hospitals (usually with less than 50 staffed beds) had attested to meaningful use of EHRs.
"The small rural and CAHs that have achieved this milestone are well distributed across the country – success has not been limited to one region."Privacy and security requirements are part of achieving Meaningful Use. Healthcare organizations, of every size, can fulfill these important requirements with low-cost on-demand SaaS analytics services for proactive privacy breach detection and user access compliance and attestation reports.
