New EHR numbers show progress - more than one third of doctors have now attested for MU

Nearly 18 months into the incentive program for electronic health records and a growing minority of doctors are qualifying for meaningful use. The latest report shows 36 percent of physicians have attested that they’re using electronic health records in a meaningful way under federal guidelines.

The new rate is progress. The current percentage is three times larger than the puny 11 percent of medical professionals secured at the end of 2011. Yet, there is still plenty of work to be done.

The numbers show that doctors are more likely to qualify when their IT solutions do not disturb their workflow. Everyone understands that electronic medical records will be a new way of doing business for the medical community but many doctors, especially small practices, don't have time to sort through government regulations, IT issues or new recording procedures.

Perfect Care EHR continues to shine compared to national numbers. NCG Medical's attestment rate is more than 83 percent.

We guarantee attestment for doctors who want to pursue incentive money.
