I knew that it was only a matter of time before someone put together an EHR stimulus calculator and I finally found one here. The basic idea is you input your details and then it calculates how much EHR stimulus money you qualify (under the Medicare side of the stimulus money). I think that a calculator like this is important since the amount of EHR stimulus money you get depends on the amount of allowable Medicare charges.

Now, I’m not exactly sure how the calculator linked to above is calculating the Medicare allowable charges. You’ll see I left a comment asking this very question. Does anyone know of other EHR stimulus calculators like this one?
