Step 5: Achieve Meaningful Use Stage 2

Imaging Results

Objective:

Imaging results consisting of the image itself and any explanation or other accompanying information are accessible through certified EHR technology (CEHRT).

Measure:

More than 10 percent of all tests whose result is one or more images ordered by the EP during the EHR reporting period are accessible through CEHRT.

Clinical Importance:

The availability of diagnostic imaging results, along with accompanying information, in the EHR allows providers ease of access when needed during a patient encounter. It also provides an increased ability to share information with patients and assists in improving efficiencies, as access to this information assists in avoiding repeat tests and reducing radiation exposure to patients.
