What will be the affect of the Electronic Medical Record(EMR) incentives in the US?

I believe that some hospitals and clinics change paper records to charge more to insurance companies and government agencies. With an EMR system, I suspect that this type of fraud would be reduced. In addition, the efficiency would be increased.

Will the systems be 6% more efficient?

Will fraud be reduced?

Are there other side effects of the EMR incentives authorized by US congress?
