Dr. Joseph Nelson, DMD, owner of Pure Dental in Massachusetts, is one of the few dentists to have made it through not only Stage 1 of Meaningful Use, but also Stage 2. In this interview, I talk with him about electronic health records, his motivations during selection and implementation, and meaningful use incentives.
Dr. Nelson has been using MacPractice for 2.5 years. Did meaningful use certification matter during EHR selection? Was it useful afterwards? How has MacPractice affected his daily practice?
