The vast majority of hospital CIOs recently surveyed by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) said they're concerned that they won't be able to demonstrate "meaningful use" of electronic health records (EHR) -- and therefore won't qualify for federal reimbursements for rolling out the technology.
Ninety-four percent of the CIOs responding to the survey whose results were released Tuesday said that they're concerned they can't meet government requirements about how to report meaningful use of EHRs, and 92% said that they're concerned about a lack of clarity in the criteria used by the government.
