NJ docs beat fed deadline: Signing up in droves for electronic health records
Date:11/17/2011

emonstrate the value of EHR adoption, we look forward to the rest of the state's practitioners joining the movement and then our state's eight million residents will begin to see how this movement will result in reduced cost and improved quality of healthcare delivery."

The grant's next phase will be to assist NJ-HITEC's primary care providers utilize their EHR systems to meet the federal criteria of "meaningful use" established by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). "NJ-HITEC will now commence a provider-centered focus to assist each doctor to select a fully accredited EHR system and work intensively with these physicians and their staff to demonstrate the proper way to use these systems to benefit the patient and the practice," added O'Byrne.

"This phase of work will continue until 2015 as it is expected that electronic health information technology will increasingly become a part of how high quality healthcare is delivered to Americans. Ultimately, every patient will have an interoperable, safe, and secure electronic health record that is accessible in a nationwide interoperable health information network."

NJ-HITEC is one of 62 federally designated Regional Extension Centers (REC) nationwide established to improve American healthcare delivery and patient care through the investment in health information technology. As New Jersey's lone REC, O'Byrne recognizes the scope of work ahead of NJ-HITEC as well as those organizations that have helped in its success including NJIT and the State of New Jersey.

NJ-HITEC provides support and assistance to New Jersey's primary care providers in the selection, implementation, and achievement of "meaningful use" of an ONC accredited Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. NJ-HITEC is the federally designated Regional Extension Center (REC) for New Jersey established by NJIT through a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
