HMS Responds to American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
Date:2/26/2009

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare Management Systems, Inc. (R) (HMS) has been closely following the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) as it unfolds, especially its impact on community hospitals. As outlined in the HIMSS informational webinar yesterday on ARRA, even with the up-front investment required by hospitals, hospitals cannot afford to wait to implement electronic health record (EHR) technology if they are to take full advantage of the incentive payments beginning in 2011.

HMS currently serves more than 600 community hospitals, and we are fully committed to providing solutions that comply with all existing and future regulations of the ARRA to assist these providers with satisfying the forthcoming health IT standards mandated by the government. We understand certification, integration and time to implement are going to be key deciding factors for hospitals looking to select a vendor. Whereas it may require multiple years and millions of dollars to implement larger systems, we believe HMS' turnkey approach and focus on rural and community hospitals will be an advantage. As a vendor of integrated clinical and financial hospital information systems, HMS is uniquely positioned to provide community hospitals with an EHR within a condensed timeframe; in fact, the average time to implement an EHR from HMS is six months or less. To demonstrate our continued commitment to furthering healthcare technology, we are offering to assess the current health IT functionality for those hospitals that need it and assist them in creating a plan to realize their full potential under ARRA.
