NCVHS to examine ‘meaningful use’

As the Department of Health and Human Services attempts to make sense of the stimulus legislation and create a health IT incentive program, the National Council on Vital and Health Statistics is holding a hearing next week on “meaningful use” of health information technology. Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, HHS must define that term before the end of 2009.

The meeting will take place April 28-29 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, 2660 Woodley Rd., N.W., Washington, D.C. The hearing also will be webcast. Click here for details.
