How can I use EHR / EMR stimulus funding?

CMS will pay HITECH incentives on a per provider basis through either Medicare or Medicaid to offset the cost of EHR adoption. Eligible physicians can individually qualify for up to $44,000 or more in economic stimulus incentives. A practice of three physicians could qualify for $132,000 or more. Physicians adopting a free EHR may use stimulus incentives at their discretion if they demonstrate Meaningful Use on a certified EHR.
