There seems to be no shortage of complaints along the road to meaningful use, according to a new survey.

The survey, conducted last month by Stoltenberg Consulting at the 2014 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Fla., showed an array of frustrations for providers.

Many of them (50 percent) pointed to lack of resources as the biggest barrier to achieving meaningful use; others cited tight time frames (23 percent), lack of buy-in from others in their organizations (15 percent) and competing health IT projects (12 percent).

Seventy percent of respondents said they don't think their organizations are making the most of meaningful use.
