The federal government is offering medical practitioners the opportunity to earn bonuses of up to $44,000 under Medicare and $63,750 under Medicaid. These bonuses are part of the EHR Incentive Programs, which were established and funded under the healthcare provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The goal of the incentive programs is to encourage the widespread use of electronic medical record systems across the United States.
To be eligible for the maximum bonus amount, physicians must register by 2012 for the Medicare program and by 2016 for the Medicaid program. Additionally, they must demonstrate meaningful use of a federally certified EMR.

Warning: Meaningful Use and Bundled EHR Alert
Be careful with bundled EHR products from one vendor. Many EHR vendors will attempt to sell you a certified EHR made up of various modules that must be used as an "integrated product" for Meaningful Use attestation. Often, not all bundled parts of an Integrated EHR are certified. As a result, users of bundled software are sold uncertified and inferior parts.
In contrast, Praxis EMR did not require any third party products to certify for Meaningful Use, and has award winning, universal billing and lab integrations.
