How to Use Elation's MU Dashboards to Track Your Meaningful Use Progress

Last Updated: Oct 29, 2015 02:43PM PDT
To track your progress on Meaningful Use requirements, you can use your Meaningful Use and Clinical Quality Measures Dashboards in Elation. We recommend that you check these Dashboard frequently during your reporting period. Note: Data for these Dashboards are updated at midnight daily, so wait till the following day to make sure that data reported today shows up correctly.

The Meaningful Use Dashboard lists out all the measures you must satisfy, and tells you how well you are doing for each measure. The Clinical Quality Measures Dashboard lists out all the CQMs you must report on, and tells you how much you have been reporting for each measure.

TIP: Check out our "How to Use Elation to Meet your MU requirements" articles here in the Help Center for ways to easily incorporate meeting all your MU qualifications into your regular workflow.

Meaningful Use Dashboard

1. Under "Reports", click on "Meaningful Use". This will take you to your Meaningful Use Dashboard.  

2. Make sure that you click on the corresponding Stage for 2015, ensuring that you click on "Modified Stage 1" if you are attesting for Stage 1 this year. Note: Refer to the "Modified" dashboards, which include the updated measures that comply with CMS final rule on MU.
 

3. Then, make sure that you have the appropriate criteria set for your reporting period.
 

4. Now, you can see how well you are doing for each measure by looking at the dashboard. If the number in your "%" column is equal to or greater than the number in "Goal" column, you have successfully met the requirement for those measures!
 
  • Goal column = % threshold you need to meet for each measure
  • Yes column = You must check off the checkboxes in this column, for measure that require YES/NO goal
  • % column = your % for each measure
  • Numerator column = # of patients in the numerator for each measure
  • Denominator column = # of patients in the denominator for each measure
 

5. In order to see patients who were included in the numerator for each measure, click on "View List" button on the right side of each measure row. Then, you can see the list of patients who meet the criteria and patients who do not meet the criteria for that measure. In order to raise your % for the measure, you can click on each patient who do not meet the criteria, and see if you can enter in appropriate data to have these patients count towards the numerator.
 

6. In order to see details about each measure, you can simply click on the measure title on the Dashboard. This will take you to an article in our Support Center, with details about the measure.

Clinical Quality Measures Dashboard


1. Under "Reports", click on "Clinical Quality Measures". This will take you to your Clinical Quality Measures Dashboard, which tracks the CQM portion of your Meaningful Use requirements.
 

2. Make sure that you have the appropriate criteria set for your reporting period.
 

3. Since CQMs do not have a goal percentage you need to meet, you simply need to make sure that you have numbers for each CQM by looking at the dashboard.
  • % column = your % for each measure
  • Numerator column = # of patients in the numerator for each measure
  • Denominator column = # of patients in the denominator for each measure
 

4. In order to see patients who were included in the numerator for each measure, click on "View List" button on the right side of each measure row. Then, you can see the list of patients who meet the criteria and patients who do not meet the criteria for that measure.
 

5. In order to see details about each measure, you can simply click on the measure title on the Dashboard. This will take you to an article in our Support Center, with details about the measure.
