CMS said at the HIMSS13 conference that it anticipates 80% of qualified hospitals and 50% of qualified physician practices will become meaningful users this year. Acting CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner said 2013 would be "busy," with a focus on education. "We're going to spend a lot more time with physicians -- helping physicians learn, and helping physicians work with their current vendors to make things a little easier for them," Tavenner said.
