By Terry Edwards – Since the era of meaningful use began more than five years ago, healthcare providers have made great strides in implementing electronic health records (EHRs) within their facilities. The EHR market is now in the billions of dollars annually in the U.S. alone, and HealthIT.gov estimates that $22.5 billion in incentives will be paid to providers for adoption of EHR technology between the years of 2011-2022.
