Statement of Purpose
The HITECH Act of 2009 prioritizes use of health IT to reduce health disparities. The HITECH Act established the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Meaningful Use program and the Office of the National Coordinator’s (ONC) Standards and Certification Criteria program. On March 30, 2015, the CMS and ONC published a set of proposed regulations for the two programs. These proposals are open for public comment through May 29, 2015. This webinar will apply a health equity lens to identify the impact of the proposed rules on the reduction of health disparities. The purpose of this webinar is to provide an evidence-based analysis of the proposals with regard to the advancement of health equity.
Health care providers, policymakers, consumers and policy organizations interested in advancing health equity should attend this activity.
- Define the “health equity lens.”

- Demonstrate application of the health equity lens to one provision of the 2015 Edition Standards & Certification Criteria proposed rule.
