A few days ago, I posted a poll to try and gauge how readers of this site are approaching the billions of dollars in EHR stimulus money. It’s still early in the voting so if you haven’t voted already, go and share (anonymously) how your clinic is approaching the EHR stimulus money.

However, even this early it’s interesting to see the current results of the ARRA EHR Stimulus money poll which asks the question: How are you planning to approach the ARRA EHR stimulus money?

I’ll admit that I’m surprised by how many people voted for the “EHR Stimulus… or Bust” option. Although I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since I posted that EMR is About the Money.

What’s even more interesting is that 72% of those that voted are planning or hoping to get the EHR stimulus money. Looks like $18 billion in EHR stimulus is stimulating something.
