Regional Extension Centers Gaining Traction

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT announced last week that Regional Extension Centers have reached 100,000 physicians. The press release included this statement:

This commitment by more than one-third of all primary care providers nationwide to work with their Regional Extension Center (REC) to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs as a way to transition from paper records to certified EHRs, representing a major step toward broader and more meaningful use of health IT.

Note that AmericanEHR has contact information about the RECs here.
