Greenway Medical Technologies Assists Capitol Hill With Shaping of The President's Stimulus Package

CARROLLTON, Ga., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Leaders, customers and partners of Greenway Medical Technologies, led by the company's vice president of marketing and government affairs, Justin Barnes, recently returned from Washington, D.C. where they played an important role in assisting the legislation surrounding the healthcare information technology (HIT) portion of the $787 billion stimulus package that has recently been passed into law.

Greenway's leadership during the past decade in the healthcare IT (HIT) and electronic health record (EHR) industry paved the way for the company and its partners to assist lawmakers and staff with shaping the framework for the stimulus package that includes changes to Medicare and Medicaid payments that add up to more than $30 billion in EHR adoption incentives according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). This includes a large amount of public policy and investment changes that encourage and reward the adoption and meaningful use of certified EHR technology by hospitals and physician practices in an effort to create a widespread and interoperable healthcare system by which patient health information can be exchanged quickly and securely across a broad spectrum of providers.

Since 2005, Barnes, on behalf of Greenway(R) and the HIMSS Electronic Health Record Association, has testified or addressed members of Congress and the president's administration on 12 occasions, helping to create more effective HIT legislation and regulation, much of which served as the framework for the stimulus package just passed by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama. Barnes also serves as the chairman of the HIMSS EHR Association, which addresses national efforts to create interoperable EHRs in hospital and ambulatory care settings.

"The creation and support of legislation as well as regulation that advances healthcare IT adoption and interoperability is something we wholeheartedly support and stand behind at Greenway," said Tee Green, president of Greenway Medical Technologies. "The creation of an interoperable healthcare system will benefit America by improving care quality, increasing patient safety, eliminating waste and reducing fraud."
