Meaningful Use - No Partial Credit For Those Not So Lucky
This all-or-nothing strategy does not take into account the fractional structure of healthcare and that it is a community based business. Each community of providers is on a different part of the HITECH readiness curve. This difference penetrates past rural verses urban providers all the way down to the departmental and practitioner level for each group. Setting the bar high is good for those close to the bar, but what about those who have farther to jump?
