'Meaningful Use' of Health IT


This Kaiser Family Foundation article reports on defining "meaningful use" of health IT:

HHS soon will issue guidance and specifications on the definition of "meaningful use" of health information technology, National Coordinator for Health IT David Blumenthal said on Friday, CongressDaily reports (Noyes, CongressDaily, 5/8).  "Meaningful use is very much on our mind," he said, adding, "We hope to provide a direction and some specifications in the late spring, early summer" (Goldstein, "Health Blog," Wall Street Journal, 5/8).

What do you think is meaningful use of health IT (something that doctors and hospitals should get incentive payments for)?  How should that be decided?
