ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to the demand for electronic health record (EHR) technology. According to Raymond Falci, managing director of Cain Brothers &Co., demand for EHR software may ramp up gradually. He attributes the gradual build to some portion of the market which are waiting to see the final rules. Jim Corrigan, vice president and general manager at GE Healthcare IT, highlights the shift in timing due to the delay in the meaningful use definition.
