  • How about adding a question to the EHR poll like:
    I have or will have an EHR, but do not see Medicare or Medicaid patients, so can’t get anything.

    That would be a good option. I think it’s about time to do another poll like this one now that we know more of the details surrounding meaningful use. I’ll keep your option in mind when I create it.

  • Stephanie,
    This poll is pretty old now. Seems like it’s time for me to do it again to see how people’s opinions might have changed now that we know more details about the stimulus.
