Of these providers, who are therefore eligible to continue in the EHR incentive program, only about 4% appear to be on track to meet Stage 2 requirements. With the December 2014 deadline looming, providers are in danger of losing billions according to data recently released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
