Much ado has been made out of electronic health records (EHRs) in terms of meaningful use, the set of standards defined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Incentive Programs that governs the use of electronic health records and allows eligible providers and hospitals to earn incentive payments by meeting specific criteria. The sometimes forgotten goal of meaningful use, however, is to promote the spread of EHRs to improve health care in the United States.
Participants in this 4-hour workshop will review the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) act; the anatomy of the EHR, and the expected and potential benefits of EHR data through lecture, hands on EMR practice and discussion.
