Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 27, 2013
A Podiatrist located in Glen Ellyn, IL. has attested to meeting Phase 1 requirements for Medicare Meaningful Use of health information technology as defined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). ARRA provides $19 billion in Medicare incentive payments to physicians who demonstrate Meaningful Use of an EHR system. To qualify, physicians must meet prescribed benchmarks, including 15 Core criteria that all eligible physicians must meet and five of ten Menu-set criteria, for 90 consecutive days.
The health analytics capabilities that Medorizon’s practice management systems delivers to physician desktops will be even more important in light of recent guidance from the federal government on Accountable Care Organizations, which highlight the need for the ability to identify and reduce gaps in care in an increasingly collaborative environment.
The Meaningful Use Dashboard illustrates the percentage of each physician's patient visits that meet requirements toward each Meaningful Use rule. In addition, the Meaningful Use Dashboard provides links to the text of the relevant Meaningful Use criteria. Users can also drill down from the Meaningful Use Dashboard into their patient records to identify successful and missed cases, and ultimately correct inefficient workflow processes or proactively reach out to patients.
“Since we’ve been using Medorizon we’ve been able to enhance our patient care, myself and our patients love the fact that their medical records are easily accessible. I’ve also noticed an increase in revenue and a smooth practice workflow as well on the Practice Management end.”
Medorizon has a family of cloud-based and ASP based services that enable physicians to enhance patient care and manage their practices more efficiently. The Optum PM and Physician EMR system includes a CCHIT Certified 2011 Ambulatory EHR solution that saves physicians time and money by helping them access clinical information and patient medical history at the point of care. Optum PM and EMR features connections to thousands of labs, hospitals, pharmacies and commercial and government payers. The system helps physicians conduct medication and allergy verification and interaction checks, electronic prescribing, and quality measurement and reporting. Ingenix CareTracker also fully integrates with all of the operational functions of a physician practice, simplifying administrative tasks such as billing, scheduling and documentation.
