ePrescribing among physicians is limited

At Health Systems Change, they look at the slow pace at which physicians are adopting electronic medical records. The Government is placing an emphasis on this because not only does it improve patient safety but it will also help to slow the growth of healthcare spending. It also points out that starting in 2011, physicians who "demonstrate meaningful use of electronic medical records" will receive larger incentives from Medicaid and/or Medicare.

What do you think will help doctors finally achieve the goal of electronic medical records?
