Wired MD: NJ Plugs Into Funding to Digitize Patient Records

New Jersey announced a milestone Thursday in the long journey to convert the state’s hospitals and physicians to electronic medical records: Nearly $40 million in federal incentive funds is flowing this week from Medicaid to the first 70 healthcare providers in New Jersey to go digital. Over the next decade, state officials estimated that 3,000 providers would receive up to $500 million in Medicaid incentive payments to help defray the cost of installing the computers and software that will maintain patient records - prescription medications, lab tests, exams, surgery - in digital files that ultimately will be accessible via the Internet, anywhere in the world. http://bit.ly/zcUb0W
