“The Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs are designed to encourage hospitals and physician practices to implement and use EHRs in specific, meaningful ways intended to drive higher quality, coordinated and efficient care. Known informally as “Meaningful Use,” these programs drive adoption and use of important functions such as provider access to patient information at the point of care, clinical decision support and medication safety features, electronic capture of health information, timely electronic patient access to health information in the record, and other activities that promote coordinated care, such as the ability to exchange clinical summaries with other professionals and organizations.”
