Meaningful use is another way of making sure your organization is compliant in meeting quality and safety recommendations. You collect information through EHRs. That information is then used as data points for different quality measures.
The SAFER guides consist of nine guides organized into three broad areas. These guides enable healthcare organizations to address EHR safety and ability to contribute to overall organizational quality in a variety of areas. Most organizations will want to start with the foundational guides and proceed from there to address areas of greatest interest or concern. The guides identify recommended practices to optimize the safety and safe use of EHR.
