EHR Systems and EMR Incentive Programs

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) has reinvented how providers use information technology. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, a part of ARRA, calls for incentive payments to promote information technology throughout the healthcare community. Electronic health record (EHR) systems are a primary focus for physician practices of every size. Much of the billions of dollars that will go to physicians, hospitals, and community health centers to help them offset their costs for implementing electronic medical records (EMR) has been and will continue to be administered through the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs.

What do you need to know about the CMS EHR incentive program?

Many physicians and healthcare organizations are facing uncharted territory in the effort to align themselves with the federal goals of improving patient care and coordination, effectively managing public health data and improving efficiencies in the delivery of healthcare. The signing of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) earmarked $31 billion dollars dedicated to healthcare IT initiatives through the HITECH Act. A main focus of the HITECH Act is electronic medical record 9EMR) implementation and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) is offering incentive reimbursements to eligible providers and hospitals to help drive EMR adoption.

Learn How To Select EMR Vendors Wisely

Don’t wait

Selecting and implementing electronic medical records (EMR) doesn’t happen in a day. Take the time, well before being ready to implement a new EMR, to select the EMR vendors to include on a short list to evaluate. With 580 ONC-ATCB 2014 Edition Certified complete EMR products on the market, it’s hard to know what to look for. Build time for decision making into the implementation timeline. Realistically, a successful implementation of EMR-only could take up to 2 months. Implementation of both PM + EMR could be up to 3 months. Keep in mind that an implementation launch is dependent on mutual availability of resources of the EMR software vendor and the organization seeking to go live on the EMR.
