EHRs - Meaningful Use

Using electronic health records to improve health and health care beyond meaningful use requirements.

We know hospitals use EHRs and other technology in ways that are meaningful to patients and communities. But the rules governing the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive and Quality Payment Programs are complex and involve guidance from multiple federal agencies.

This webpage provides descriptive material and links to AHA and external resources to help make sense of the federal requirements to support optimal use of the EHR. Also available are resources on hospital and health system use of EHRs and other health information technology to improve care and engage patients.
