HITECH Advisor was a priceless resource, bringing our team from registration to attestation quickly and efficiently.
Weston, FL (PRWEB) June 06, 2011
As the initial checks are being cut by the government for the HITECH incentive program, Gastroenterology Associates of York will be among the first practices to receive $18,000 per physician for completing the 90 days required for the first year of Meaningful Use. They were supported by HITECH Advisor, a consulting service that guides practices to meet Meaningful Use.
“Congratulations to Gastroenterology Associates of York for reaching this milestone. Meaningful Use has proven to be a moving target that requires more time than previously anticipated by practices, and we are very pleased that HITECH Advisor was able to pave the way to their success,” said Sam Rubinzstain, Vice President of Product Development and HITECH Consultant at gMed. “This is a great product and we look forward to providing more value to all of our customers.”
Gastroenterology Associates of York, a 7 physician practice in York, Pennsylvania, will receive their HITECH incentive check in the next several weeks.
“HITECH Advisor was a priceless resource, bringing our team from registration to attestation quickly and efficiently,” said Erin Dettrey, Clinical Affairs Coordinator and gGastro superuser for Gastroenterology Associates of York. “The advisors were extremely knowledgeable in CMS rules and prevented several, potentially very costly missteps we would have made on our own. Our practice is confident in the quality of our attestation, but more importantly, feel ready to attack the next set of standards that CMS imposes.”
