Health IT Legislation and Regulations

Health IT Regulations

ONC authors regulations that set the standards and certification criteria EHRs must meet to assure health care professionals and hospitals that the systems they adopt are capable of performing certain functions. The ONC HIT Certification Program also supports the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, which provide financial incentives for “meaningful use” of certified EHR technology.

ONC also provides regulatory resources, including FAQs and links to other health IT regulations that relate to ONC’s work.
