Software Advice Asks About EMR Lurkers, Lookers and Buyers

Dear Readers: Here’s an email I got today asking me to publicize this poll to my readers.  I thought it was interesting, so here it is.  I look forward to the results.

Hi Mary Pat,

Here at Software Advice, we’ve been getting a lot of questions about the HITECH Act and how practices can get a piece of the Stimulus pie. This got us thinking about EMR adoption rates. Has the stimulus influenced practices to buy? Or has it just reinvigorated research?

We may get some insight this Friday. is supposed to post their report on stimulus spending. This will include information on any grants awarded between February 17th (the signing of the bill) and September 30th.

In the meantime, we’d like to know your anecdotes. Are more doctors buying because of Stimulus incentives? Take our survey at: Obama’s EMR/EHR Stimulus of 2009 ”“ Creating Buyers or Tire Kickers? Be sure to come back Friday to see the results!

Thanks again for your help.
