I previously posted an EMR Stimulus poll asking about people’s plans for the EMR stimulus. Well, that was more than a year ago and before we really knew what the words meaningful use and certified EHR meant. Now that we know more about those two important terms and the EMR stimulus in general, let’s do the poll again and see how things might have changed.

I posted an EHR stimulus poll a week ago and I thought it would be interesting to post some preliminary results. I really wish a few more people would have participated in the poll. It’s only 2 clicks to add your opinion. I expect over time I’ll get some more responses.

Take a look at the current results for the question: How will your clinic be approaching the EMR Stimulus money made available in the HITECH Act (ARRA)?
EMR Stimulus Money Poll Results

What’s surprising to me from the results so far is that such a large percentage of people are either waiting to hear about the EHR stimulus money or are planning on the EHR stimulus money. This poll is a little bit biased since so many of the people visiting EMR and HIPAA these days are coming here to learn about the EHR stimulus money.

Like I’ve said before, there’s no doubt that the $18 billion investment by Obama into electronic health records has increased the interest in EHR software. We’ll have to just wait and see how much of this increased interest in EHR turns into actual EHR purchases.

I decided to try out a few polls on EMR and HIPAA. I have a feeling they’ll be pretty popular and could provide some interesting insight into the world of EMR and EHR. If you have a poll, you’d like me to run, let me know in the comments and I’ll consider adding it. I don’t want to overrun this place with polls, but hopefully my readers will find them interesting as will I.

Here’s the first poll about people’s interesting in the ARRA/HITECH act EMR stimulus money:

I’m sure this poll could be improved, and it’s far from scientific. Nonetheless, I think the results could be really interesting.
