What is Meaningful Use?

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 specifies three main components of Meaningful Use:

1. The use of a certified EHR in a meaningful manner
2. The use of certified EHR technology for electronic exchange of health information to improve quality of health care.
3. The use of certified EHR technology to submit clinical quality and other measures.

“Meaningful use” means providers need to show they’re using certified EHR technology in ways that can be measured significantly in quality and in quantity.
