Many EHRs Not Ready For Meaningful Use

“A new study of readiness to attest to–and receive incentive payments for–Meaningful Use of electronic health records (EHRs) may help explain the slow progress in actually meeting the standard in 2011.
About 91% of office-based physicians were eligible to apply for either Medicare or Medicaid bonuses for MU in 2011, the first year of the $27 billion federal EHR incentive program, according to researchers from the Researchers at the National Center for Health Statistics at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While 51% of doctors intended to apply for Meaningful Use money, just 11% of all office-based physicians both intended to apply and had EHR systems capable of achieving most of the requirements.”
