What is the
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act
as a part of the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act provided certain incentive payments
made available to health care providers for the adoption
and implementation of interoperable health information
technology and qualified Electronic Health Records (EHR).
Under the HITECH Act, two regulations have been
released, one of which defines the “meaningful use”
objectives that providers must meet to qualify for the
incentive payments, and the other which identifies the
technical capabilities required for certified EHR technology.
is electronically capturing health
information in a “structured format” using the information
to track key clinical conditions and communicating that
information for care coordination purposes, implementing
clinical decision support tools to facilitate disease and
medication management, and using EHRs to engage
patients and families and reporting clinical quality
measures and public health information.
