These briefs identify the influence that state governments and policies, local grantees charged with implementing particular HITECH programs, health care market and community characteristics, and current health care reform efforts are having on providers' incentives and ability to meaningfully use EHRs and qualify for Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments.
