I know how much readers of this site love the various EHR market numbers. So, I know you’ll find this tweet I saw today very interesting.

$6 billion by 2015. Of course, the question then must be asked, how can the government spend $36 billion on EHR incentive money, but the EHR market will only reach $6 billion? Something doesn’t quite jive between those two numbers.
