Date:7/15/2010

JERSEY CITY, N.J., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- ITelagen, Inc., innovative provider of healthcare information technology, medical billing and electronic health records (EHR), and Bell Medical Services, Inc., a leading regional distributor of medical supplies, equipment and pharmaceuticals welcome the US Health and Human Services Department's release today of the final rule on "meaningful use" of an electronic health record (EHR).

Under the HITECH Act of 2009, health care professionals can qualify for incentive payments when they adopt certified EHR technology, such as Allscripts EHR from ITelagen and Bell Medical.

The solution from Bell Medical and ITelagen, that delivers to physicians medical billing, Allscripts EHR, HIPAA certified hosting and unlimited IT support, automates the practices billing and assures that physicians qualify for these newly defined incentives.

"We believe that clear guidance provided in this ruling and the lifecycle solution provided by Bell Medical and ITelagen will help our over 5,000 physician clients accelerate the use of electronic health technology," said Jeff Schimbeno, SVP Sales & Marketing of Bell Medical.

"This is a major achievement for the healthcare industry and the time to act is now," said ITelagen CEO John O'Keefe. "We look forward to helping Bell Medical's clients achieve meaningful use and, more importantly, realize the financial benefits of billing automation."
