A recent survey of CIO members of the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives finds 26 percent of respondents say their organization has qualified for electronic health records meaningful use funding during the first year of the program.

Thirteen percent of respondents report their organization has received incentive payments, most under a state Medicaid program. Four percent of respondents had received payments under the far more stringent Medicare meaningful use criteria.

About 93 percent of 198 respondents expect their organization to achieve Stage 1 meaningful use during the first three years of the program. More than half of respondents have registered for the program, compared with only 15 percent in a March 2011 CHIME survey.

Back in March, 90 percent of respondents had concerns about meeting meaningful use requirements. That level of concern now is 66 percent. The survey's 198 responding CIOs represent a total of 656 hospitals. Click here for a copy of survey results.
