Solutions: Overcoming Challenges to Meaningful Use in Practices

The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) understands the challenges providers experience when implementing EHRs and achieving meaningful use. Solutions to these challenges have been created through a working forum focused on engaging Regional Extension Centers, Communities of Practice, and internal and federal stakeholders to help solve challenges encountered in the field.  The solutions developed contain tools, trainings, success stories and other resources to address key challenges. The goal is to build an evolving body of knowledge and resources to support health care providers and health IT professionals working towards the implementation, adoption, and meaningful use of EHR systems.
