Under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009, eligible health care professionals and hospitals can qualify for Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments when they adopt certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology and use it to achieve specified objectives. Two regulations have been released, one of which defines the "meaningful use" objectives that providers must meet to qualify for the bonus payments, and the other which identifies the technical capabilities required for certified EHR technology.

Target audience
IT Executives and Sr. Management who are responsible for IT strategy and core application systems across the enterprise. This assessment will allow them to be assured that their IT investments yield the expected benefits. It will also improve alignment between the IT function and the business.
While the registration into the program started on January 3rd, most Healthcare facilities are behind the curve in becoming certified, leaving them unable to take advantage of these Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments. Those institutions that are "first in line" will receive more of these incentives, leaving less for those that lag behind. Not being certified will eventually lead to reduced Medicare and Medicaid payments, costing your institution money!
Our Consultants will deliver detailed report that includes the above deliverables and present the findings to our client's management committee.
