Netsmart's InfoScriber E-Prescribing Solution Can Help Organizations
Achieve Benefits of H.R. 6331
GREAT RIVER, N.Y., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Netsmart Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise-wide software and services for health and human services organizations, today announced dates for a special Web seminar to help behavioral health organizations understand electronic prescribing and the new Medicare bill passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate that provides financial incentives to physicians that use e-prescribing technology.
The bill includes a two percent incentive for physicians who use electronic prescribing starting in 2009 and a two percent pay cut for Medicare-participating physicians who do not adopt e-prescribing by 2012. The electronic prescribing measures are part of H.R. 6331, the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008. The bill is considered "veto-proof" because of its margin of passage, and has been sent to the President for his signature.
The Netsmart Web seminar will focus on helping organizations understand
how e-prescribing works and to achieve the benefits of e-prescribing. The
Web seminar will be offered at several times:
-- Wednesday, July 23, Noon ET
-- Friday, August 1, 2:00 p.m. ET
-- Monday, August 11, 3:00 p.m. ET
-- Tuesday, August 19, 4:00 p.m. ET
-- Thursday, August 21, 11:00 a.m. ET
