THE FUTURE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT IN HEALTH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND DIGITAL HEALTH
Health information technology (IT) and digital health are transforming the way that health care is delivered, managed, and improved—while empowering individuals to more effectively manage their health and navigate an increasingly complex healthcare system. Since enactment of the bipartisan Health Information Technology Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act on February 17, 2009, adoption of health IT, including electronic health records (EHRs), within the U.S. health care system has grown significantly and become the norm. As of December 31, 2017, nearly $38 billion has been spent under the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) EHR Incentive Programs, established as a result of HITECH, in support of physician and hospital adoption and “meaningful use” of EHRs.
