EMR Certification

There is no doubt that it is difficult for providers to actually achieve meaningful use when seeking EMR certification. Preparing documentation and working diligently to make sure all the necessary paperwork is in order is no small task.

Many organizations are clamoring to find a way to source, convert to and effectively utilize EMR systems. At Colaborate, we have the necessary tools and experience to lend to laboratories that will help accomplish the conversion process. Whatever IT resources are needed to make the move, we have the support team in place to make it happen.

With the provisions outlined in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, there are incentives for the migration to electronic medical records by healthcare providers. If health providers and hospitals, that participate in Medicare or Medicaid, can show meaningful use of certified EMR systems they can be compensated for their efforts. The intent of such bonus is to offset the cost and impact of adopting technology.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), along with other government agencies, will establish criteria for EMR certification.
