Meaningful Use Overview

"Meaningful Use" (MU) requires that providers demonstrate they are using certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology in ways that measurably improve health care quality and efficiency.

The New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) accepts public health data from EHRs based on the Meaningful Use standards. Guidelines to interface with the state registries that align with MU can be found at the links below:
