Over on EMR and HIPAA I posted a poll this weekend asking people to share their plans for the EMR stimulus money. Basically, how important is the EMR stimulus money to them? Will they be going after it no matter what or will it just be a nice bonus if things work out. I encourage readers of this site to go and vote also. The more people that vote the more interesting the data.

So far, It’s kind of split between people who are planning on the EMR stimulus money and those that “if they get it…great.” Although, a decent number of people use EMR and don’t care about the EMR stimulus. Granted it’s still early in the voting. So, it will be interesting to watch this evolve as more people share their opinions.
