Meaningful Use

What Is Meaningful Use?

Meaningful Use is a national initiative that defines how hospitals and physicians will use electronic health records (EHRs) in meaningful ways that benefit patients. Some examples of meaningful use include proper documentation of a patient’s allergies, vital signs, and medications.

Why Do We Care About It?

Our vision is to heal humanity through science and compassion, one patient at a time. We will do this by delivering the highest quality care and service to every patient, every time. To accomplish this, we must meaningfully use our EHR to have the right information in the right place for every patient, every time.
