IVANS Hit Experts Available To Discuss the Dept. of HHS Recommendation Of “Meaningful Use” and How Potential Tighter Standards Will Impact the Provider Community

MEDIA ALERT: IVANS, Inc. has been regularly engaging its healthcare provider customers in discussions about healthcare reform, the importance of Medicare to their business and the steps providers should take in implementing technology to address short and long-term healthcare objectives.

Stamford, CT (Vocus) June 18, 2009 -- IVANS, Inc. has been regularly engaging its healthcare provider customers in discussions about healthcare reform, the importance of Medicare to their business and the steps providers should take in implementing technology to address short and long-term healthcare objectives.

IVANS conducted a 2009 Healthcare Provider Survey revealing that providers believe both pay-for-performance initiatives and technology improvements will increase the quality of care, but they are concerned about the associated costs of reform initiatives. In addition, they are actively working to grow their Medicare business over the next few years.

  • 72% of healthcare providers surveyed believe a pay-for-performance model could lead to improved patient outcomes, but 79% believe that it would also increase their costs of doing business;
  • 39% of those surveyed plan to implement electronic health records (EHRs) over the next 12 months; and
  • 78% of providers surveyed expect their Medicare business to grow over the next 3 years, as more than 68% of respondents represented home health care and nursing homes

As a key player in helping providers comply with Medicare Contracting Reform, part of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003, IVANS has already been heavily involved in the modernization efforts of Medicare. To generate similar efficiencies across the healthcare industry as a whole, IVANS believes that healthcare providers should be implementing more current technologies now, such as high-speed networks, to support faster claims processing and information sharing in the near term, while preparing to handle the more data-intensive applications (such as EHRs) that will be required in the future.
