The Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs were created under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to provide financial incentives to Eligible Providers and Eligible Hospitals who adopt and demonstrate meaningful use of electronic health records (EHRs). Achieving Meaningful Use can be a confusing and challenging endeavor for providers and their staff. The Meaningful Use Resource Center was created to provide a single, comprehensive informational tool for Eligible Professionals and their staff as they work towards meeting the Meaningful Use requirements.

If you have additional Meaningful Use questions, please call or email CRISP at:


The Maryland Meaningful Use Resource Center was developed by the Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP), with documentation and support from the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH), EHR vendors, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
