Key federal programs to boost electronic health-record system use passed a milestone last month as more than half of physicians and other “eligible professionals” have received incentive payments for attesting to the adoption of a certified EHR system.

As of April, 191,305 physicians and EPs have received EHR incentive payments from Medicare, while 88,903 have received payments from Medicaid and 11,117 from Medicare Advantage under programs created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
