Meaningful Use

Health Information Exchange Is Meaningful Use

“Meaningful Use” is a term that applies to the use of electronic health records in a meaningful way. The ultimate goal of meaningful use is to increase the quality and efficiency of healthcare, and reduce medical errors.

Under the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) EHR Incentive Program, eligible healthcare providers must meet a series of Meaningful Use measures to qualify for, and receive, financial incentives for using ONC-certified EHRs. The program includes both eligible professionals (physicians) and eligible hospitals.
