About 85 percent of Medicare meaningful use early adopters have successfully attested for 2011, 2012 and 2013, according to the latest estimates from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The "very raw, gross" numbers of eligible professionals released at last week's Health IT Policy Committee meeting are based on data from the 2013 attestation period which ended on March 31.

"I do want to put out a caveat that this is estimated data," said Elisabeth Myers from the CMS Office of E-Health Standards and Services at an April 8 Health IT Policy Committee meeting. "We have not run all of the cross checks with all of the various systems. We have not received the Medicaid reports from all of the states. So, these are just the very beginning, very raw gross data pushed out of the system."
