EHR “Meaningful Use” Rule Resources

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) includes the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, or the “HITECH Act,” which established programs under Medicare and Medicaid to provide incentive payments for the “meaningful use” of certified electronic health records (EHR) technology.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have updated a web page containing links to resources about the electronic health record “meaningful use” rule: see http://www.cms.hhs.gov/Recovery/11_HealthIT.asp. Links include a proposed definition, proposed requirements, and an FAQ.
