Meaningful Use for 90% hospitals in the next two years

The Wall Street Journal today reports that 28% hospitals expect to qualify for incentives in 2011 and 62% in 2012. This is consistent with my expectation from a few weeks ago that Meaningful Use will be item #1 on the agenda for healthcare IT. The Gold Rush is about to begin, even though questions remain on whether true adoption can be achieved in this time frame.

I'm visiting a number of hospital CIOs this week (and posting will be light as a result) but I'll report back on first-hand impressions from the field.
