The Impact of EMR Incentives

Posted on October 11, 2012 by

What would happen if the EMR incentive program was halted? The EMR & HIPAA blog has a good discussion of the consequences of a proposal by some U.S. Congressmen to halt the incentive payments begun under Meaningful Use. I believe the incentive program is not only promoting electronic health records in this country but also paving the way for wider adoption of evidence-based clinical decision support, which can point the healthcare system toward more effective treatment decisions and away from less effective treatments that waste money and sometimes endanger patient health.
