Meaningful use attestation data is now available on Data.gov. The information represents the reported attestations by eligible providers (EPs) to CMS. The data provided consists of the name of the EHR vendors, specialties and state or territory of the reporting EP. By simply analyzing this data, we can identify the following findings:

Geographic distribution:

Based on the data, the following states rank as the top 20 for reported attestations for MU. As some of these high figures may be simply be linked to the larger population density, they can also be linked to the incentives and grants that have been awarded to each state from some of the federal programs available as part of HIE monies and HERSA.
