Shareable Ink's "Meaningful Use" Program for Anesthesiologists
ShareMU is a program that combines certified EHR software and a process that enables anesthesiologists to qualify for Meaningful Use - even if they don't work in an office-based setting.
The enterprise cloud-based software resides in the background, requiring little or no implementation at the facility. Information is captured effortlessly using digital pens or an iPad application. This ease and portability supports every care setting where anesthesia services are provided – without the need for a pre-existing EHR or the involvement of hospital IT staff.
The process defines the method to capture the data for each required “Core Objective”, “Menu Objective”, and “Clinical Quality Measure” that comprises Meaningful Use. The protocol was optimized to avoid or minimize workflow changes for the anesthesiologist.

The 2009 Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act authorized the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide financial incentives to physicians and hospitals for the “Meaningful Use” of certified EHR technology by 2015, and penalties thereafter for non-compliance. The overarching goal of the program is to encourage the use of EHR technology in ways that can positively impact patient care. The financial incentives to physicians who qualify as “Eligible Providers” (EP) add up to $44,000 per EP if Meaningful Use starts in 2012.
