EHR implementations shatter CMS estimates

Article

More than 110,000 medical providers have attested to meaningful use after implementing electronic health record (EHR) systems, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

More than 110,000 medical providers have attested to meaningful use after implementing electronic health record (EHR) systems, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Only 3 months ago, CMS estimated it would reach 100,000 by the end of this year. Although the agency has doled out $5.7 billion in incentive payments to healthcare providers so far, officials estimate that about 20% of the provider market has attested to meaningful use. About 48% of hospitals have achieved meaningful use, CMS adds.
