MU will soon be a MIPS - Why and What do you need to Know?
by Jeffery Daigrepont | Senior Vice President at Coker Group

In response to the great recession of 2008, Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), commonly referred to as The Stimulus or The Recovery Act.[1] This act injected nearly $800 billion of federal funds into a myriad of markets across all sectors of our economy. $20 billion of the $800 billion was earmarked for the healthcare sector, which included funds to purchase Electronic Health Records (EHRs). Thus, the incentive program known as "Meaningful Use" (MU) was born. The primary objective was to create jobs. While the incentive program was mostly unsuccessful on a large scale, some will argue it saved the country from going deeper into a recession. Some markets, such as health care IT, saw an explosion of new jobs as a result of this act. This success was in part due to a flood of entrepreneurs and investors from the private sector all rushing in to get their share of the $20 billion designated for healthcare.
