HIMSS Electronic Health Record Association Executives Testify at NCVHS Hearings on 'Meaningful Use' Criteria
Date:4/28/2009

CHICAGO, April 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Executives from the Electronic Health Records Association (EHR Association) testified at this week's National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS) hearings to help define and clarify "meaningful use", a term used in the HITECH Act (part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, ARRA).

Barnes' testimony, like that of Mark Segal, Ph.D., member of the EHR Association Government Relations Workgroup and Director of Government and Industry Relations for GE Healthcare IT, has its foundations in the Association's recently published recommendations to the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) on "meaningful use", developed collaboratively among all EHR Association member companies.
