Most people have no idea what “meaningful use” actually means under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009. “Meaningful Use” is arguably one of the most complicatedly vague terms that come from HITECH. Yet in spite of all that vagueness, every HIPAA “covered entity” is required to employ “meaningful use” of an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) or an Electronic Health Record (EHR) - whatever that means! RobbLAW has extensive experience in HITECH whether your business is a solo practitioner or part of a larger healthcare organization. We prepare our clients for establishing a “meaningful use” policy to ensure compliance with HITECH. We assist our clients in validating that their use of an EMR or EHR follows established guidelines to meet regulatory “meaningful use” compliance, including big name platforms like Cerner, McKesson, and Epic.
