Have you started EHR implementation? If not, you may miss out on incentive payments
Abstract: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 enables health care providers, physicians and hospitals to qualify for incentive payments when they adopt and demonstrate “meaningful use” of health care information technologies, particularly electronic health records (EHR). Beginning this year, hospitals can receive the first group of incentive payments by satisfying 19 requirements described in Stage One of the meaningful-use rule. This article shows how to get started.
