Much has changed in 2014 for Meaningful Use (MU)—and been changed back again, temporarily. Many practices have questions about how to participate effectively. Physicians and practice managers are concerned about putting undo burden on themselves and other staff, tracking and reporting accurately, and avoiding an audit. Find out how to get the incentive, avoid the penalty, and participate in MU through lessons learned from other EHR users.

In this webinar, meaningful use expert Barbara Drury will share her AAA advice:

  • A(dopt): Experiences learned from MU1 and MU2 EHR users
  • A(ttest): Issues to address during and after yearly attestations
  • A(udit): Housekeeping and     preparation experiences to date
  • Quality opportunities beyond MU

This is your chance to make sure you are doing MU right—from Adopting through Attestation and Audits!

New Practice Gets Off to a Great Start with Kareo

July 28th, 2014 by Kareo

Mary Lou AlonsoStarting a new practice can be daunting even for a healthcare veteran like Mary Lou Alonso, NP, who has 30 years of experience. The challenges go beyond those of a traditional small business. There are the added pieces of setting up medical billing and putting in place processes for scheduling, clinical documentation, and much more.

When Mary Lou Alonso decided to go out on her own, she knew all of this, and she looked for a software and services partner who could help get her new practice off the ground successfully. “I belong to a group of Nurse Practitioners who meet to talk about these types of business issues,” she recalls. “Someone suggested Kareo. I have worked with a lot of different systems, and I was impressed with what Kareo offered.”


Mary Lou was looking for a complete solution—practice management, electronic health records, and billing services. “We were being pursued aggressively by other companies, but in the end, I chose Kareo because it offered a whole solution for a low flat rate each month, and I really liked the documentation in the EHR. It seemed to be made for small practices like  mine.”

The flat rate was all inclusive, and there were no contracts or extra fees. Other vendors had told Mary Lou there would be additional fees for credentialing or adding more staff. She liked that she could see her billing at any time and at very deep level of detail. And as a provider she also liked the documentation, which she says is easy to use. She appreciates that with the documentation, she can easily go back and review what she has entered.

“The thing I like most about Kareo is that it is designed for small practices like mine,” Mary Lou says. “It is easy to use and offers lots of flexibility. It has the features I want and very personal service and support. And, I get all of that for a price that my new business can afford.”

To learn more about Mary Lou and the Simple Start program for new practices, read the full case study.
