EHR and practice management for mental / behavioral health

Meaningful Use

As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), the federal government launched the HITECH program, which provided stimulus incentive funds for demonstrating Meaningful Use of certified EHR (electronic health records). Under this program, Eligible Professionals (EPs) may have qualified for up to $44,000+ in incentive funds. 


In 2017, the MIPS program brought 3 pre-existing programs together: Meaningful Use (MU), the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), and the Physician Value-based Payment Modifier System. These are under the umbrella of MACRA QPP: Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act Quality Payment Program. Click here for program details.
