Dr. Chhoda is an expert when it comes to EMR implementation and he is eager to bring this new information to the physical therapy community.
The HITECH Act was part of the 2009 stimulus law and it offers government assistance to medical professionals who are transitioning to electronic medical records. This help is not just for those who might want to implement EMR. The federal government is requiring medical professionals to go digital as part of the Affordable Care Act since electronic medical records eventually leads to a significant savings and thus helps bring down the cost of medical care, a key component of making the ACA work.
Chhoda uses this article to define the HITECH Act and reveal the true cost of implementing EMR for physical therapy services. HITECH sets aside over $20 billion to help medical professionals defray the cost of implementing EMR and for physical therapy practices that operate on very tight margins the financial help is much needed. Chhoda has taken it upon himself to educate physical therapy professionals about the help available and his EMRNews.com is the perfect vehicle to bring the information to the physical therapy community.
Chhoda uses this article to detail the two stages associated with the HITECH Act. Stage One sets out the criteria medical professionals must follow to qualify for help under the HITECH Act and reveals that EMR must be implemented by December 2014 in order to qualify for federal funding. Stage Two offers help as the demands on EMR increases.
