CMS: Meaningful Use EHR Incentives Hit $12.3B in February

With some healthcare providers now into their second year of meaningful use reporting, Medicare and Medicaid electronic health record payments were estimated at $12.3 billion paid to a total of 219,000 physicians and hospitals through February since the program’s inception.

"The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will post final figures for February later this month as it captures more complete data, said Robert Anthony, a specialist in CMS’ Office of eHealth Standards and Services at Thursday’s Health IT Policy Committee meeting, which was broadcast live."
