EHR Implementation Rising, But Hurdles for Healthcare Providers Remain



Recent data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services point to progress in Electronic Health Record (EHR) implementation. Under the meaningful use program established by the 2009 stimulus bill, 75 percent of eligible hospitals and 73 percent of healthcare providers have received incentive payments for attesting to EHR use, CMS says.



However, the picture is far from rosy. Separate studies suggest that 23 percent of providers want to switch EHR systems and that, given the choice, 40 percent of providers wouldn't buy the same EHR system again.
