Description
 
Widespread use of health info. tech., such as electronic health records (EHR), has the potential to improve the quality of care patients receive and reduce health care costs. However, studies have estimated that as of 2009, 78% of office-based physicians and 91% of hospitals had not adopted EHRs. Among other things, the Health Info. Tech. for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, enacted as part of the Am. Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provided funding for various activities intended to promote the adoption and meaningful use of certified EHR technology. The largest of these activities, in terms of potential federal expenditures, are the Medicare and Medicaid EHR programs. Concerns have been raised that various factors, such as location in urban or rural areas or the size of hospitals and professional practices, may affect the extent to which different providers will respond to the provisions of the HITECH Act that aim to encourage the meaningful use of EHR technology. This report provides information on providers that were awarded Medicare EHR incentive payments for 2011, the first year of the program. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
