The “Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health” Act (HITECH Act) outlined the intended plans for the adoption of electronic health records through meaningful use(MU). CMS Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive programs have evolved into three stages of meaningful use with their own goal, priorities and their own final rule.Meaningful use means “providers need to show they’re using certified EHR technology in ways that can be measured significantly in quality and in quantity.”
Meaningful use sets specific aim that eligible professionals (EPs) and hospitals must achieve to qualify for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Incentive Programs.
