Hudson Valley Physician Testifies Before House Health Subcommittee Tuesday About Incentives for Adoption of Health Information Technology
Date:7/19/2010

Eugene Heslin, MD of Bridge Street Medical Group will discuss use of health IT in his small practice with House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health July 20

FISHKILL, N.Y., July 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- If a small general medical practice in Saugerties, NY can use new health IT tools to deliver safer, more efficient health care for its patients, so can practices across the nation. That is the message Eugene Heslin, MD, lead physician at Bridge Street Medical Group, will bring to the House Committee on Ways and Means, Subcommittee on Health, Tuesday at 1 p.m.

Beginning in October, billions in Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments will become available to health care providers who can demonstrate "meaningful use" of electronic health records. The long-awaited final rule for what constitutes meaningful use was released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services July 13. House Committee on Ways and Means health subcommittee members invited Heslin to testify about the role incentives may play as providers move to adopt health information technology.

Heslin, who has used electronic health records in his six-physician practice since 2006, is on the leading edge of health information technology adoption. In 2009, Bridge Street Medical Group was among 11 practices with 237 primary care physicians operating at 51 sites across the Hudson Valley that adopted the patient-centered medical home model and used health IT to support his practice redesign to this new approach to care.

"I speak on behalf of my patients, representing their stake in health IT," Heslin said
