Blumenthal puts quality reporting at apex of meaningful use

Government Health IT, October 20, 2009

National health IT coordinator David Blumenthal emphasized that the ability of clinicians to amass, analyze, and report healthcare quality measures lays at the heart of his office's strategy for using IT to transform the U.S. healthcare system. "The key to meaningful use is to know how to measure for performance and to be able to give feedback to providers," Blumenthal said Oct. 15 at a conference sponsored by the National Quality Forum.
