The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act specifies that physicians can qualify for $44,000 or more in economic stimulus incentive payment for adopting and implementing a certified EHR or EMR. The government allocated $27 billion dollars to help doctors transition from paper medical records to electronic medical records (EMR) systems or electronic health records (EHR) systems and show meaningful use of these systems. Physicians will be assessed penalties for not adopting an EMR system by 2015.
