Advancing Electronic Health Records Adoption and Meaningful Use

Co-Sponsored by Health Affairs

The Forum hosted this event with Health Affairs to examine opportunities for the private sector to advance the goals set forth in the recently released regulations defining meaningful use of electronic health records. The meeting was keynoted by National Health IT chief David Blumenthal and Marilyn Tavenner, principal deputy administrator at the CMS. Stuart Altman and Susan Denzer moderated panels of payers, provider organizations, and physician certification and licensure groups detailing the steps they are taking to help providers meet recently issued federal regulations outlining “meaningful use” of health IT. A video of this event is available on the Health Affairs website:
