MEANINGFUL USE 8 To conclude, I had no idea how the HIT infrastructure was first proposed or implemented. Because of the HITECH Act of 2009, we now have incentives and penalties in place to help promote EHRs that implement data that is of meaningful use. EHRs with meaningful data are paramount for healthy populations and effective patient care. This HIT infrastructure will help the federal government track health care data related to public health. This action alone will help promote health and help maintain healthy populations. This will also aid in the continuity of care for each individual because healthcare professionals will now be able to access the most accurate data to make well informed decisions about a patient’s care. The public will benefit because of health promotion data for whole populations. The patient will benefit because of an increased quality of care and an increased level of safe care. These are insights I did not realize until I undertook this paper.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
