Allscripts Applauds Economic Stimulus Incentives Rewarding Physicians for Using Electronic Health Records

r our healthcare system to be all it can be, physicians need to be able to provide quality care at a consistently high level, and that cannot occur without an electronic health record," said Dr. Caruso, who also uses an Allscripts Electronic Health Record. "The same is true of providing more cost-effective care -- you can't get there without technology."

Dartmouth-Hitchcock was one of 10 physician groups nationally to serve as pilot sites for CMS's first Pay-For-Quality program, which tested whether paying physicians to follow best practices using an Electronic Health Record in the treatment of chronic disease would result in better health outcomes (and lower costs for Medicare). Dartmouth-Hitchcock received nearly $6 million in performance payments from CMS, the largest performance payment of all of the pilot groups, for improving the quality and cost efficiency of care in treating patients with chronic disease between April 2006 and March 2007. The Clinic was among four pilot groups who together earned $13.8 million in performance payments in return for saving Medicare $17.4 million, according to CMS.

Dr. Caruso continued, "Our expectation is that CMS would like to do more of these programs and with almost $2 billion dollars to distribute, we believe, hope and expect the incoming Secretary will do just that."

David Merritt, Project Director of the Center for Health Transformation, founded by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, commented: "This is a significant and important down-payment on modernizing our health system through information technology.
