EMR Stimulus

Integrated physician billing,practice management, and electronic health record service.
$44,000 in EMR Stimulus Package Incentives

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) authorizes the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide reimbursement incentives for eligible professionals who succeed in becoming "meaningful users" of certified electronic health record (EMR/EHR) technology. The law includes the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, or the "HITECH Act," which established programs under CMS. On July 13, 2010, CMS issued its final rule on EHR Incentive Programs under Medicare and Medicaid. The Final rule established the criteria and reporting requirements which eligible professionals follow to prove meaningful use of their adopted EHR technology.

Anything related to Medicare and Medicaid always seems to be overly complicated, and the EHR incentive program is no exception. We have distilled the federal law into something (sort of) understandable. To learn more about Meaningful Use and the stimulus requirements, click here.
