Meaningful use of school health data.

Author information

  • 1University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA.


Meaningful use (MU) of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) is an important development in the safety and security of health care delivery in the United States. Advancement in the use of EHRs occurred with the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which provides incentives for providers to support adoption and use of EHRs. School nurses play an important role in alerting the public and key decision makers to the value of school health data to the MU of EHRs. The timeline for adopting MU of EHRs is short and school nurses must participate in the process to assure MU of school health data. This article describes MU and the importance of this federal action to school health.
