$17 billion worth of incentives for healthcare providers has been allocated through the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), a part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, to support a national healthcare information technology infrastructure.
According to David Blumenthal, MD, national coordinator for health information technology with the Department of Health and Human Services, the system will help facilitate, inform, measure and sustain improvements in the quality, efficiency and safety of healthcare delivered to every American. In order to receive these incentives, hospitals and physician practices must be able to show that their implementation of healthcare IT will result in demonstrated improvements in healthcare outcomes known as “meaningful use”.
