The Lake Almanor, Calif.-based Association of Medical Directors of Information Systems (AMDIS) and Detroit-based Compuware Corporation have teamed up to launch www.meaningfuluse.org, a Web site designed to promote and advance dialogue and education around meaningful use.

According to the companies, the site will provide the HIT community with a single, central location to access resources, collaborate, influence and discuss the definition of meaningful use, and to learn how to take advantage of the HITECH Stimulus funds. Visitors to the site can also access relevant news articles, obtain links to government or third-party sites with references on the topic, and sign up for RSS feeds.
