The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009, or the "HITECH Act", established programs under Medicare and Medicaid to provide incentive payments for "meaningful use" of certified EHR technology. The Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records Final Rule was released by the Department of Health and Human Services, which provides guidelines for eligible health professionals and hospitals to receive incentive payments under Medicare and or Medicaid for the adoption and meaningful use of electronic health record technology. The Department has implemented a number of new programs designed to support providers in the adoption and effective use of Health IT.
