Data on Meaningful Use Attestation

Some very interesting data on meaningful use attestations thus far. While the reports already posted by CMS provide good information (such as the map below with a state by state breakdown), the data released on Data.gov enables systematic analysis of the distribution of certified EHR vendors and products among those providers that have attested to meaningful use within the CMS EHR Incentive Programs. The data set can be analyzed by vendor, state, provider type, provider specialty, and practice setting. One data point that would make this even sexier is the dollar amount paid for each attestation, but hopefully that can be included in future releases. I'll be doing some deeper analysis of this data, but some initial interesting facts are noticeable about state and vendor figures.

Here are the top 25 states in number of attestations for meaningful use as of November 2011:
