Meaningful Use

Dec 13, 2013

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) allocates $19 billion in government funds to encourage the healthcare industry to adopt information technology in the way of electronic health records.

Integrating this technological advance will help medical practices prevent medical errors, cut unnecessary costs, limit paperwork and improve the quality of healthcare across the nation. Both the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs provide financial incentives to eligible professionals who are able to demonstrate meaningful use of certified EHR technology.
