The “inexorable progress” of the federal EHR incentive program continues, with payments to providers moving ever closer to $20 billion.

As of the end of November, more than 436,000 hospitals and health professionals have registered for the Medicaid and Medicare EHR incentive program, and the federal government has made more than $17.7 billion in payments, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services told the Health IT Policy Committee in an update.
