Health Maintenance

Health Maintenance is a feature of medical software that uses patient and/or population health history to prevent illness and promote health; historically Health Maintenance is a function of managed care or health maintenance organizations (HMOs), but with the advent of electronic health records, the Meaningful Use Incentive program, and the corresponding core and optional functions, health maintenance is becoming the responsibility of individual physicians.
