CARROLLTON, Ga., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to enhance and encourage community-based health information technology (HIT) adoption within the Buffalo, N.Y. region, Greenway Medical Technologies today announced a new program designed to work with regional health information organizations (RHIOs), health information exchanges (HIEs), clinical information exchanges and other community HIT organizations to provide preferred pricing structures for these groups.
With momentum increasing for HIT and electronic health record (EHR) adoption, created in part by the passing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), physicians, medical practices, hospitals and other healthcare organizations are positioned to benefit financially through incentives offered through ARRA, as well as from a clinical standpoint whereby healthcare providers utilizing disparate HIT systems can share patient information across an interoperable network of other healthcare providers.
To incentivize community health organizations to adopt EHR solutions, Greenway(R) is offering qualifying organizations its industry leading and CCHIT Certified(R) 08 EHR, PrimeSuite 2008, through a specialized pricing structure with reductions of up to 25 percent. By offering these preferred prices, Greenway intends to further contribute to the creation of an interoperable healthcare system that spans individual practices and works toward a national system of shared information.
"Greenway creates fully-integrated certified EHR solutions and services that allow practices, hospitals and health information exchanges to operate efficiently and maximize profitability all while working to help bring about an interoperable healthcare system that will improve population health and reduce rising healthcare costs," said Graeme Hennessey, regional vice president of sales at Greenway Medical. "We are confident that our long-term business plan for practices and hospitals, coupled with our portfolio of interoperability and clinical research solutions, will be of benefit to the Buffalo, N.Y. healthcare system and its patients."
