The HITECH act, included in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, allotted significant funds to incentivize the adoption of electronic health records.

In this session you will learn from experts regarding the evolution of this law and more important real world strategies you can implement in your own practices to achieve meaningful use.

Regardless of whether it’s new or existing, all technology will need to be certified before it is deemed acceptable for Meaningful Use.

Further, this lecture will provide you with the ability to communicate intelligently with your vendor(s) to understand their plans for certification of their products. Finally, if you have created any technology of your own, this lecture will guide you into the necessary steps for self-certification.
