    Evaluating the current state of meaningful use


                But even at practices that have abandoned Meaningful Use, they and the broader healthcare community continue to advance their rates of EHR adoption and use. Clinicians and institutions are doing so not necessarily to be MU, but because health IT can make a difference in clinical care, said Patricia Wise, RN, , FHIMSS, vice president of healthcare information at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).

    “They’re just not doing it to the government requirements,” she said. “They’re providing outstanding quality care, but they’ve moved away from providing the data the government requires on Meaningful Use. They’re moving forward with technologies they think are more applicable to their populations.”
