Enter your meaningful use data into the calculator to learn if you have met all of the objectives and the associated measures prior to completing attestation for Stage 1 of the EHR Incentive Programs.

Calculator Updates 
The updated calculator reflects the latest requirements for participation in Stage 1 of meaningful use.
