Meaningful Use

Meaningful use is the set of standards defined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Incentive Programs that governs the use of electronic health records and allows eligible providers and hospitals to earn incentive payments by meeting specific criteria.

For details about the incentive programs, visit the CMS website.

The goal of meaningful use is to promote the spread of electronic health records to improve healthcare in the United States. The benefits of the meaningful use of EHRs include:

  • Complete and accurate information

  • Better access to information

  • Patient empowerment

There are new Stage 2 measures for several objectives, including the use of imaging, that require patients to use health information technology in order for providers to achieve meaningful use.


Our vendor-neutral architecture solutions can help providers achieve meaningful use by:

  • Providing a unifying visual platform that delivers physicians what they need, but can't get elsewhere

  • Filling treatment and diagnostic gaps inherent in all EMR systems and patient records

  • Unlocking the trapped value of digital clinical assets

  • Managing ALL necessary clinical content—DICOM and beyond

  • Possessing extreme agility, flexibility, and scalability

  • Intelligently storing content for easy integration, retrieval, cost savings, technology obsolescence, organizational change, and enterprise legal-entity configurations
