Stimulating EHR Usage

Posted by Mark Brousseau

President Barack Obama has pushed hard for healthcare IT and would like every American to have an electronic medical record by 2014. To that end, the recently passed economic stimulus package provides temporary bonus payments ranging from $44,000 to $64,000 for physicans and up to $11 million for hospitals that meaningfully use electronic health records. In all, the stimulus package has more than $100 billion allotted to healthcare.
