"Meaningful Use" is a way of using certified EHR technology to:
All, while maintaining privacy and security.
Under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, eligible health care professionals and hospitals can qualify for Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments when they adopt certified EHR systems, and use them to achieve meaningful use objectives. The Act allocated $19 billion for hospitals and physicians who demonstrate the "meaningful use" of EHRs.
