Meaningful Use

What is Meaningful Use?

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act provides Health and Human Services (HHS) with the authority to establish programs to improve health care quality, safety, and efficiency through the promotion of health information technology (HIT), including electronic health records (EHR) and private and secure electronic health information exchange.

Under the HITECH Act, eligible health care professionals and hospitals can qualify for Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments when they adopt certified EHR technology and use it to achieve specified objectives (“Meaningful Use of an Electronic Health Record”). Find out more at
