The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will be issuing over $20 billion as incentives to certified EMR providers.
In order to qualify for the incentive, you must first prove meaningful use of a certified EMR. Meaningful use is defined as the use of certified EMR technology at point of care, such as e-prescribing, while ensuring connectivity and data sharing between other providers regardless of the EMR solution they use, and that clinical quality measures are reported to the Secretary. The reporting period for 2011 will be 90 days, and after that, the reporting period will be a full year. (more)
