Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs require the use of certified EHR technology. Standards, implementation specifications and certification criteria for EHR technology have been adopted by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. EHR technology must be tested and certified by an Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ATCB) in order for a provider to qualify for EHR incentive payments.
Care Connect is a Meaningful Use-certified EHR.
As a Care Connect subscriber, your practice has the opportunity to earn up to $64,000 if you enroll in Medicaid or up to $44,000 if you enroll in the Medicare program.
RGHS and GRIPA will assist you in meeting the necessary Meaningful Use requirements to help ease the burden, confusion and complexity of this process.
Additionally, with Care Connect, ICD-10 and future Meaningful Use upgrade requirements are included at no additional cost and are implemented automatically. No other EHR can provide this additional value!
