Meaningful Use
• Financial incentives for the “meaningful
use” of certified EHR technology to
improve patient care
• Providers have to meet thresholds for
certain objectives
– Required core objectives
– Choice of menu objectives
• Meaningful use must be demonstrated for
all patients, not just Medicare or Medicaid
subscribers
