Update: Radiology Participation in Meaningful Use

According to recently released Medicare/Medicaid EHR Incentive Program data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), 4576 diagnostic radiologists, 1513 radiation oncologists, 210 interventional radiologists, and 92 nuclear medicine physicians have attested to at least one year of Meaningful Use (MU) as of the end of 2013.

Only 16 diagnostic radiologists—in what appears to be at least four locations—used 2014 Edition certified EHR technology for MU in calendar year (CY) 2013.

The file was posted on May 31 and the metadata was updated on February 28. It is unclear if the data set also contains the March 2014 attestations for CY 2013 reporting periods.  As you may recall, CMS extended the attestation deadline by one month for CY 2013 reporting periods.
