The program, Meaningful EHR Use, challenges care providers to move toward electronic records through a series of phases to be implemented through 2015. Patient Care Vice President Deb McKee said Joint Township District Memorial Hospital approached Phase I of the program by focusing on the hospital’s emergency department.
