In my last post Michael Milne made the following comment that I think was worth discussing:

I firmly believe that less than 5% of all doctors who do buy a “certified” EMR are going to collect.

For example, how many here, or even heard of someone, have actually collected the e-prescribing incentive?

I think that 5% is a low estimate of who will collect on the EMR stimulus money. Although not that much lower. What do you think?
