        An EHR is effective only if physicians and other providers adopt it. What Creteria? Interoperability is important, not certification. Too much requirement will hinder innovation, i.e. open source EHR. Incentives and management have to be decentralized at physicians and patients' level. How? Tax credits rather than through medicare/medicaid given not all providers accept medicare/medicaid.

        How will the $20B be allocated? Will it go to state governments, hospitals, physician practices, vendors? What will be the criteria for determining funding recipients?
