“We found physician groups are making headway in attesting to EHR  meaningful use for Stage 1 and beginning to formulate strategies for transitioning to new accountable care reimbursement models.”CapSite vice president and GM, Gino Johnson, said in a statement.

Vendors covered in the report include Allscripts, athenahealth, Cerner, eClinicalWorks, GE Healthcare, Greenway, McKesson, Meditech, NextGen, Practice Fusion, Siemens, Vitera, and many others.
