Many hospitals are unprepared to meet the federal government's recently released criteria for demonstrating "meaningful use" of electronic health records, according to a Computer Sciences Corp survey. For the report, CSC surveyed 58 hospitals of various sizes. The investigators found that two-thirds of surveyed hospitals have identified gaps that could prevent them from meeting the meaningful use requirements. The survey also noted that one-quarter of facilities have met at least 70% of the "readiness criteria" for meaningful use.
