+ - Investigation Reveals Electronic Health Records Program Lacks Oversight->

Submitted by Lucas123
Lucas123 (935744) writes "An investigation by the Inspector General's office of the Department of Health and Human Services revealed that billions of dollars dispersed to physicians and hospitals for their deployment of the electronic health records was based on a self-reporting system that lacks oversight. To date, $4 billion has been dispersed to 82,535 healthcare professionals and 1,474 hospitals, which reported they deployed EHRs and are meeting criteria for the "meaningful use" of those systems. Federal investigators suggested in their reportthat healthcare providers be subjected to prepayment audits to ensure they're using the technology for which they're being reimbursed."
