1 THE TIME IS NOW TO TRANSITION TO ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS 1 MedTech Enginuity Corp. “Where Medical Engineering & Ingenuity Meet.”

2 MSOs – A Provider’s Ally 2 For those physicians looking at the Medicare and Medicaid electronic health record (EHR) incentive programs, it pays to be prepared. Incentives are available to eligible physicians who "meaningfully use" a certified EHR – up tocertified EHR $44,000 under Medicare $63,750 under Medicaid.

3 In the United States, the HITECH Act promotes adoption of this technology by defining e-prescribing as one meaningful use of an electronic medical record.[10] Standards for transmitting, recording, and describing prescriptions have been developed by the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs, in particular the SCRIPT standard, which describes data formats. Elsewhere in the world, health care systems have been slower to adopt e-prescribing standards.[11]HITECH Actelectronic medical recordNational Council for Prescription Drug Programs SCRIPT Providers have a new ally to help them Adopt, Adapt, and Advance…MedTech Enginuity Corp., Service Partners, Management Service Organizations (MSOs) and Meaningful use Consultants We are more than just an EHR vendor: State designated in many States, partners with (RECs) Regional Extension Centers Local resources in each state Meaningful use specialist and attestation consultants Well-versed in a variety of EHR technologies, we are vendor agnostic MSOs – A Provider’s Ally 3

5 4 Critical Items to implementing the correct EHR Software. #2: *E-Prescribing –Electronic prescribing or e-prescribing (e-Rx) is the computer-based electronic generation, transmission and filling of a medical prescription, taking the place of paper and faxed prescriptions. E-prescribing allows a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant to electronically transmit a new prescription or renewal authorization to a community or mail-order pharmacy. It outlines the ability to send error-free, accurate, and understandable prescriptions electronically from the healthcare provider to the pharmacy. E-prescribing is meant to reduce the risks associated with traditional prescription script writing. It is also one of the major reasons for the push for electronic medical records. By sharing medical prescription information, e-prescribing seeks to connect the patients team of healthcare providers to facilitate knowledgeable decision making.[1]medical prescriptionpharmacyelectronic medical records 4

6 4 Critical Items to implementing the right EHR System #3: *Meaningful Use Reporting (Meaningful Use) (Meaningful Use 15 Core Measures 5 out of 10 Menu Measures Year 1, 90-day reporting period in same calendar year Year 2, 3, 4, 5 (6 for Medicaid Only) entire calendar year 4

7 4 Critical Items to implementing the correct EHR Software. #4: *HIE Connectivity –Health information exchange (HIE) is defined as the mobilization of healthcare information electronically across organizations within a region, community or hospital system. HIE provides the capability to electronically move clinical information among disparate health care information systems while maintaining the meaning of the information being exchanged. The goal of HIE is to facilitate access to and retrieval of clinical data to provide safer and more timely, efficient, effective, and equitable patient-centered care. HIE is also useful to public health authorities to assist in analyses of the health of the population.health carepublic healthanalyses of the health of the population HIE systems facilitate the efforts of physicians and clinicians to meet high standards of patient care through electronic participation in a patient's continuity of care with multiple providers. Secondary health care provider benefits include reduced expenses associated with:continuity of care ■the manual printing, scanning and faxing of documents, including paper and ink costs, as well as the maintenance of associated office machinery ■the physical mailing of patient charts and records, and phone communication to verify delivery of traditional communications, referrals, and test results ■the time and effort involved in recovering missing patient information, including any duplicate tests required to recover such information*Meaningful Use Reporting 4

18 Medicare (Fed) VS Medicaid (State) [EHR Incentive Programs] After successfully demonstrating meaningful use for the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program, will incentive payments be paid as a lump sum or in multiple installments? Eligible professionals (EPs) participating in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program will receive a single lump sum payment for each year they successfully demonstrate meaningful use of certified EHR technology. Eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals (CAHs) participating in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program will first receive an initial payment. The final payment will be determined at the time of settling the hospital cost report. Payments to Medicare providers will be made to the taxpayer identification number (TIN) selected at the time of registration, through the same channels their claims payments are made. However, for EPs practicing in a health professional shortage area (HPSA), the additional incentive payment will be paid separately to the same TIN as the incentive payment. Medicaid incentives will be paid by the States. EPs, eligible hospitals, and CAHs participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program should check with their State.
