Abstract

"Meaningful use" of interoperable electronic health records throughout the U.S. health care delivery system--the goal set forth in the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) of 2009--is a critical national goal. Proposed federal regulations on data exchange standards and the definition of meaningful use are well conceived and provide a foundation for the nation to begin the journey.
