Why should I be interested in an EHR System?

Electronic Health Records (EHR) allows you to provide a higher level of care to your patients. In addition, if 30% or more of the visits to your practice are from Medicaid patients, you are eligible for a total of $63,750 in government incentive payments (per licensed dentist). To qualify, you need to purchase and use a certified electronic health records software program and demonstrate a standard known as “meaningful use.”

How does EHR integrate with my Practice Management Software?

Once you have finished with your documentation in the electronic health records portion of your software, you can send your procedure codes directly to your patient’s treatment plan.

Can I talk to someone using the system?

Yes, we have clients who are using the certified EHR/EDR to do meaningful use. Please call us for references.

What does Meaningful Use mean?

Meaningful Use is a standard set up by the ONC in 2012 to help establish a national health information system. It is focused on improving healthcare quality and changing the current system so that clinicians are focused on providing quality care. There are three stages of Meaningful Use. Stage 1 is performed for 2 years, Stage 2 is performed the second 2 years. Stage 3 is performed for the third 2 years. Essentially, the focus is to change the electronic health record system from a repository to a useful tool to improve care. By performing this standard, you can collect incentives associated with adhering to it.
