To digitize and modernize healthcare, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 directed the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC – U.S. Department of Health & Human Services) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to develop regulations to provide incentives to healthcare providers for implementation and meaningful use of an EHR system. This initiative is also called as “Meaningful Use.”

The EHR incentives are substantial and offered via both Medicare and Medicaid / Medi-Cal programs. They range from $18,000 to $21,250 in incentive payments this year and a total of $44,000 to $63,750 over the next 5 to 6 years.

Some of the key components that are considered for meaningful use are

  • Tracking key patient-level clinical information.
  • Generating reports for focused set of meaningful use results.
  • Implementing electronic healthcare transactions.
  • Initiating use of clinical decision support systems.
