The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, title XIII of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 [1], sets the stage for a fundamental and far-reaching shift in health care practice. Through provisions and financial incentives that promote adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) by primary care physicians, creation of regional centers that assist physicians transitioning from paper to electronic records, and development of health information exchanges that provide infrastructure and support for the electronic interchange of health information among providers, insurers, and systems, one of the act’s objective is to establish a foundation for adopting EHRs nationwide.
