HITECH Answers and C3 Partners Announce the Availability of MUM MD©
11/18/2010

C3 Partners, LLC and HITECH Answers, LLC announce the formation of a business relationship to sell C3 Partner’s unique Meaningful Use Monitor (MUM©) tool through HITECH Answers on-line store. MUM MD© provides an annual subscription to small physician groups for them to establish clinical processes and reports to demonstrate meaningful use.

Online PR News – 18-November-2010 – – C3 Partners, the developers of Meaningful Use Monitor (MUM MD©), announced today the availability for purchase of their toolset through HITECH Answers online store. Now used by over 800 physicians, MUM MD© provides physician practice groups a comprehensive process to track progress of meaningful use for each physician throughout the HITECH Act compliance life-cycle.

Recognizing the need for small group and solo physician practices to efficiently comply with CMS EHR Incentive Program (HITECH) requirements, C3 Partners have tailored the MUM MD© solution to meet these needs. In order to receive HITECH stimulus payments, physicians must deploy a CMS certified EHR system and use it in a prescribed manner that demonstrates meaningful use as defined by CMS.

HITECH Answers will offer an annual MUM MD© subscription to small physician groups so that client practice managers will be able to establish clinical processes and reports to demonstrate meaningful use. MUM MD© software content defines approaches for this compliance and allows practice managers the ability to define processes that work best for their physician group.

"The MUM tool tracks progress to meet MU and reports progress for each physician in the practice to support the annual attestation report required for CMS payment." said Bob Tumanic, a managing partner at C3. "Once compliance is achieved, EHR reports and other documentation can be stored in MUM to demonstrate compliance in the event of future CMS audit." The end result, he says, is that small group practices will have access to the same software and support capabilities that are available to much larger physician groups.
