Electronic Health Records
The American Recovery and Investment Act of 2009 (ARRA) allocated $19 billion in Medicare and Medicaid incentives to eligible physicians who demonstrate the “Meaningful Use” of a certified electronic health record system.
Medical practices considering implementing an EHR may be in one of several places:
- You’re researching the basics of the incentives for acquiring electronic health records.
- You’re looking to purchase or replace an electronic health record.
- You have met the initial Meaningful Use requirements and are looking for resources to continue pursuing advanced stages of Meaningful Use.
