ARRA stands for the “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,” a significant piece of legislation enacted in 2009 in the United States. The primary purpose of ARRA was to stimulate economic growth and job creation in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. The Act allocated funds for various purposes, including infrastructure projects, education, healthcare, and renewable energy initiatives. In the context of healthcare, ARRA included the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, which sought to encourage the adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) and make them meaningful and actionable.
