Blogging about EHRs from a social service perspective

New EHR Incentive reports available from CMS

Data and Reports | Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

The feds just released reports from 2011 and parts of 2012 for their Medicare & Medicaid EHR incentives program.  It’s not surprising that Pennsylvania was one of the largest receivers.  Through their listserv, they also providing a link to a report showing specialties — quick pivot table below.  Of course psychiatry isn’t high on the list, but that is expected since other psychology-related disciplines (social workers, psychologist, counselors) are not yet eligible to receive incentive payments and they frequently work together.

      Thank you. Unfortunately, I’m clearly not on top of this blog as I started it while I was out of work. I haven’t been involved much with our current EHR system. Partly because it’s a seat license model and Quality Improvement lost out when it came to paying the bucks for an extra seat license. The implementation has not gone well though, so perhaps I will be involved at some point soon. Then, I might have something worthwhile to blog about. 🙂
