Does Your Office Need to go Paperless?
If you are a Medical Office and you haven't yet setup a computerized paperless, electronic health record system, then the answer is YES!
AND... Omega will be there for you every step of the way. Start managing your records electronically. Omega's full service process will insure you get the proper software, hardware and network setup that meets the government requirements to take your practice paperless.
The adoption of the electronic health records (EHRs) system must be embraced by medical offices by the year 2015. This requirement, set into motion by the Federal Government, is being supported with $27 billion dollars in funds being expended over the next five years, mainly disbursed to those medical offices that "go paperless" and can meet the proper Meaningful Use requirements the government has mandated.
If you install an EMR (Electronic Medical Records) system during 2012, each practitioner that has purchased the system may be eligible for the complete $44,000 incentive rebate (paid out over 5 years). This incentive goes down each year, until the year of 2017. At this point the incentive goes away and those offices that haven't complied must bear the full burden of this cost. If you are not paperless by the year 2015, penalties are also imposed that will decrease the amount of medicare and medicaid reimbursements you receive from the Federal Government. Please review the chart below to see the incentive schedule.
After installation is complete, the practitioner must meet “Meaningful Use” criteria to receive the governments incentive reimbursement.
