Meaningful Use Definition

Editor’s note: The definition of meaningful use is an important cornerstone to driving the adoption of health information technology.

U.S. health agencies release measures to push EMR adoption
Federal health agencies on Wednesday issued proposals aimed at stimulating the widespread use of electronic medical records among health care providers. The CMS’ proposed rules define “meaningful use” of EMRs upon which eligibility for federal incentives will be based, while the HHS’ interim final rule outlines provisions on interoperability, security and use of health IT. The final rule on EMR standards is planned for release sometime next year.¬†Reuters
