Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Meaningful Use

CMS Meaningful Use is a program used for improving patient care by encouraging the use of certified Electronic Health Records (EHR). Using guidelines and criteria established by the government, medical professionals are awarded incentives through three stages of measures. In addition to maintaining privacy and patient security information, EHR technology can enhance the quality, safety and efficiency of healthcare; engagement between patients and family and improve the coordination of all aspects of care.
