Making Sense of Meaningful Use
Meaningful use refers to provisions in the 2009 Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, which authorized incentive payments through Medicare and Medicaid to clinicians and hospitals that use electronic health records (EHRs) in a meaningful way to significantly improve clinical care. To receive incentive payments, a clinic’s qualified healthcare providers must first document, or attest, that they are using EHRs in a meaningful way.
