Meaningful Use: ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) Incentives
The United States government thrust healthcare into the national spotlight with the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act in its landmark legislation, The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The HITECH Act creates sweeping programs that aim to improve the health of Americans along five healthcare priorities:
- Improve the quality, safety and efficiency of care while reducing disparities
- Engage patients and families in their care
- Promote public and population health
- Improve care coordination
- Promote the privacy and security of electronic health records
The act uses the existing payment structures of Medicare and Medicaid to incent and penalize participating providers based upon their attainment of key objectives for the Meaningful Use of a certified EHR.
