If you’ve adopted electronic health records (EHRs), you can now take the next step toward receiving Medicare's EHR incentive payments.

Attestation for the Medicare EHR program began April 18 for physicians, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals. Once you successfully attest to your use of EHRs through the online system, you will be able to receive the incentive money from the federal government, including $44,000 over five years from Medicare.
