OSMA's EMR Standards of Excellence Program Eases EMR Adoption Process
Date:3/3/2009

Program Enters its Second Year with New Vendors for 2009

COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- State and federal lawmakers are calling for an expansion of health information technology (HIT) use by physicians and hospitals by making funding available. Ohio's executive budget has provisions for an increase in HIT funds and the recently passed federal economic stimulus package contains $19 billion in Medicare and Medicaid HIT incentives including for the adoption of electronic medical record systems (EMR).

"The OSMA's EMR SOE Program gives our member practices the tools to succeed in selecting an EMR vendor during the multi-step and sometimes confusing selection and adoption process."

The EMR SOE Program began in March of last year and is available exclusively to OSMA members. The innovative program helps reduce the risk for physicians who wish to adopt an EMR by identifying vendors who have agreed to include physician-friendly terms and conditions in their contracts with medical practices. In addition, at a minimum, the EMR vendors in the program must be certified by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT).

OSMA members say that by identifying physician-friendly vendors, the EMR SOE Program has helped save them time and money as well as lower the risk associated wi
