National Survey Reveals Healthcare Providers' Technological Readiness to Participate in Electronic Health Records Network

In general, healthcare organizations realize they must start preparing for compliance with the HITECH Act to receive financial incentives in 2011 through 2014, avoid discounted reimbursements after 2014, and work with an increasingly mobile network of clinicians.
