Enable a user to electronically record, modify and retrieve patient demographic data including preferred language, gender, race, ethnicity and date of birth.

More than 50% of all unique patients seen by the EP have demographics recorded as structured data.

 

How does eClinicalWorks fulfill this requirement?

eClinicalWorks provides ample fields to manage patient accounts. All meaningful use demographic mandatory fields (controlled by the administrator) are available in the Patient Demographics. Choosing and marking these fields as mandatory will ensure that your front desk is collecting the necessary data for meaningful use criteria.
