"Physician Friendly" Electronic Medical Record Information will Monitor and Report on Progress, Myth and Facts of EMR Adoption

Doylestown, PA (PRWEB) October 23, 2009 -- myemrchoice.com announced that they will continue to assist physicians in the task of EMR adoption with a newsletter named Doctors EMR Quarterly and the EMR Power Ranking. The new EMR planning resources will provide free, factual information surrounding Electronic Medical Record (EMR) adoption by physicians and assist doctors in selecting from hundreds of EMR systems.

The American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009 (ARRA) calls for every US physician to migrate from paper based medical records to EHR by 2014. Currently, incentives are in place to urge doctors towards implementing an EMR system. To qualify for funding from the ARRA, the EMR choice made by a physician must show "meaningful use" as defined by the Certification Committee for Health Information Technology (CCHIT). A final definition of "meaningful use" EMR is due out in 2010, pushed back from Q3 2009.

Currently, there are hundreds of EMR software and vendors to select from.

"The move from a paper based medical record to EMR presents many challenges to physicians," said Douglas Wallace, Executive V.P. of Business Development for MyEMRChoice.com. "This move from paper to computerized patient records requires an entire rewrite to documenting the doctor-patient encounter. Changing established habits may frustrate doctors, staff and the whole process of implementation," says Mr. Wallace. "In addition, there is a lot of misinformation and confusion related to time frames, incentives, penalties and expectations of what an EMR does for the doctor, patient and government entities," continued Wallace.

myEMRchoice.com will provide updates on EMR initiatives from CCHIT, Health and Human Services (HHS), the HITECH Act, Pay for Performance and the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC). Included are initiatives such as Physician Quality Reporting Initiatives (PQRI), "meaningful use EHR" and Health Information Exchanges (HIE).

"Doctors want to focus on delivering the highest level of patient care possible, not be bogged down by moving timelines, requirements and making their choice from one of 300 EMR vendors," said Wallace. "Doctor's EMR Quarterly will quickly focus on facts, report extensions, and cut through the misperceptions associated with regulatory EHR initiatives. All of the moving parts to EMR adoption are overwhelming. We're here to give these physicians a break," said Mr. Wallace.

Plans include the Doctors EMR Quarterly and EMR Power Ranking appearing free on the company's website, www.myEMRchoice.com, or by request from physicians and medical organizations.
