Case Western Reserve receives nearly $8M to help providers enable adoption of EHRs in Ohio
Date:4/13/2010

CLEVELAND April 13, 2010 Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) School of Medicine has received $7,942,500 million in federal stimulus funds from the Ohio Health Information Partnership (OHIP), the state designated entity for health information exchange development.

"Electronic health records tend to be financially out of reach for private practitioners and small practices," said Julie Rehm, PhD, senior associate dean of the CWRU School of Medicine and associate vice president of strategic initiatives for CWRU.

The federal and state initiative is providing smaller primary care practices with an incentive to early adoption of health information technology.

"If healthcare providers adopt early they are eligible for additional reimbursement from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services until 2011. After that, the reimbursement declines and penalties kick in starting in 2015," Rehm stated.

The REC endeavor, as directed by the federal government, is specifically targeted towards primary care providers, specifically, physiciansMDs or DOs who are family physicians, general internal, pediatric or OB/GYN (does
