What patients are counted for Meaningful Use?
Every patients you see during your 90-day reporting period that have a signed SOAP note (an acronym for subjective, objective, assessment, and plan. A method of documentation employed by health care providers to write out notes in a patient's chart) are counted for almost all Meaningful Use EHR goals. Patient encounters that do not include an in-office visit will not be counted towards Meaningful Use of your EHR. There is no minimum patient quantity requirement that you must achieve during the 90-day period.
