Achieving Meaningful Use

Majority of providers intend to achieve Meaningful Use

Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announces data showing that doctors’ adoption of health information technology (IT) doubled in two years, and 52% of office-based physicians in the U.S. now intend to take advantage of the incentive payments.

Over 50,000 health IT-related jobs have been created since the enactment of the HITECH Act.  And, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of health IT jobs across the country is expected to increase by 20 percent from 2008 to 2018.
