Spent countless hours worrying over meeting Meaningful Use standards?  Dr. HITECH feels your pain. HITECH, otherwise known as Germantown, MD-based Dr. Ross Martin, MD, MHA, has produced an educational video which offers you the highlights — and we’re serious about this — of Stage 1 Meaningful Use requirements.

As you’ll see, however, Dr. Martin isn’t a conventional lecturer. As Dean of The American College of Informatimuscology, he keeps it real with a hip-hop tune dubbed “The Meaningful Yoose Rap.” (By the way, you’re interested in becoming a fellow of the college, Dr. HITECH invites you to submit musical samples.)

Check out the video and tell us what you think.  Personally, I think a little humor never hurts, even when it comes to a serious topic like MU. But hey, some people just don’t know how to have fun…
