Cerner Evaluates the question: Is Meaningful Use Over?

The EHR Incentive Program, commonly known as Meaningful Use (MU), has been considered over or has “died” many times, but it is still around. The latest “death” of the MU program is rooted in recent rule making by CMS: In the  Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) proposed rule for 2019 federal fiscal year, CMS changed the name of the EHR Incentive Program/MU to the Promoting Interoperability (PI) program, applicable to both Medicare and Medicaid. That name change is tied to a shift in the program away from incentives for EHR use and a refocusing of the program on interoperability.
