GroupOne Health Source wants to announce that last week on July 13th; the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the final rules for "Meaningful Use" of EHR technology under the HITECH Stimulus Program. This program is part of the multibillion dollar American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The CMS announcement has cleared up the uncertainty surrounding the eligibility requirements for stimulus payments and GroupOne is ready to answer your questions.
By partnering with the award winning eClinicalWorks (eCW) Electronic Health Records platform, GroupOne is well positioned to help all varieties of physician practices earn the maximum incentive payments offered by the HITECH Stimulus Program.
eClinicalWorks guarantees to not only provide products that meet the EHR certifications, but to also work alongside practices to ensure that they receive the proper education and guidance to become meaningful users. GroupOne’s goal is to help physician practices fully utilize the eClinicalWorks system in order to maximize profits.
Payments are scheduled to begin next year. Practices that implement and show meaningful use of EHR systems can receive up to $44,000 via Medicare incentive payments ($63,750 via Medicaid). The Medicare reimbursement subsidy will decrease after each year between 2011 and 2015. Those who do not implement by 2015 will see their Medicare payments increase one to five percent annually.
The first step to a reimbursement check from the federal government is a GroupOne eCW demonstration. Let GroupOne Health Source be your guide. Schedule a demo today here.
