Meaningful use is using certified electronic health record (EHR) technology to:

arrow Improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities

arrow Engage patients and family

arrow Improve care coordination, and population and public health

arrow Maintain privacy and security of patient health information

Ultimately, it is hoped that the meaningful use compliance will result in:

arrow Better clinical outcomes

Meaningful use sets specific objectives that eligible professionals (EPs) and hospitals must achieve to qualify for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Incentive Programs.
