What is Meaningful Use?

The Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs provide a financial incentive for achieving “meaningful use,” which is the use of -certified EHR technology to achieve health and efficiency goals. This section provides an overview of the Stage 1 EHR meaningful use core and menu objectives for eligible professionals (EPs) as outlined by CMS – which are intended to set a baseline for electronic data capture and information sharing.

The Stage 1 meaningful use objectives are grouped into five patient-driven domains that relate to health outcomes policy priorities. As depicted in the dashboard below, each core and menu objective is aligned to one of the following domains:

  1. Improve Quality, Safety, Efficiency
  2. Engage Patients & Families
  3. Improve Care Coordination
  4. Improve Public and Population Health
  5. Ensure Privacy and Security for Personal Health Information

To aid providers and professionals with the implementation of the Stage 1 meaningful use objectives, the National Learning Consortium presents lessons learned and resources used in the field.

Meaningful Use Stage 2

CMS recently released the final rule for meaningful use Stage 2 which intends to increase health information exchange between providers and promote patient engagement by giving patients secure online access to their health information.Learn more about the CMS Stage 2 final rule [PDF – 680 KB].
