The HITECH Act, part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Stimulus Bill passed in 2009, establishes 25 major “Meaningful Use” (MU) requirements that all electronic medical records systems must implement in order to have their users qualify for billions in government incentive money. These MU requirements will change existing and future implementations, affecting nearly all healthcare architects, developers and DBAs developing these information systems.

Join healthcare IT expert, Shahid Shah, for an insightful webinar on the impacts of meaningful use, certification of electronic health record systems, and what this means to data management professionals.
