What is determined as “meaningful use” for the EMR systems?

0

To qualify as a “meaningful user,” eligible providers must demonstrate use of a “qualified EMR” in a “meaningful manner.” The bill defers to the secretary of Health and Human Services (HSS) to set specific guidelines for determining what constitutes a “qualified EMR”; however, it does specify that e-prescribing, electronic exchange of medical records, and interoperability of systems will be determining criteria. Many expect CCHIT certification to play a major role in setting standards of interoperability.
