The number of eligible hospitals and professionals registered to participate in the electronic health record incentive program, as well as the number of those successfully attesting is lower than expected, according tot he Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC), which met in Washington, D.C. earlier this month.
MedPAC expressed concern that while participation rates have been climbing, they remain low, particularly for small independent hospitals and physician practices. In addition, the percentage of participants that actually have demonstrated Meaningful Use and received incentive payments lag behind.
