That’s right: Use our EMR and you can earn government stimulus dollars by demonstrating Meaningful Use compliance.
Practice Velocity has just announced that the VelociDoc® EMR has been ONC-ATCB certified by CCHIT®, the most reputable organization for medical software certification. In the past year, Practice Velocity has been inundated with questions about the government incentive programs offering stimulus dollars for demonstrating meaningful use of electronic health record (EHR) technology. The programs are especially vexing for those in urgent care because they were designed with primary care practices in mind, creating a slew of challenges for the industry.
We at Practice Velocity understand what’s at stake: up to $44,000 in stimulus dollars for the Medicare program. In the future, providers who have not implemented meaningful use of an EMR will incur penalties in Medicare reimbursement. Thus, our development team has been working hard to update the VelociDoc® urgent care EMR and PVMSM Practice Management software to comply with the meaningful use criteria.
I’ll be offering a webinar on the basics of the Medicare incentive program in the coming weeks, so watch out for announcements on how to sign up. Until then, please feel free to click the button below to download a whitepaper presented by Practice Velocity that provides an overview of the programs.
