Clinical Summaries for Meaningful Use

One of the most mis-understood Meaningful Use core measures for EPs is the objective to: "Provide clinical summaries for patients for each office visit". The required measure threshold for this objective is that: "Clinical summaries provided to patients for more than 50 percent of all office visits within 3 business days". EPs have the option to exclude this core measure if they "have no office visits during the EHR reporting period".
