EHR Government Stimulus
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) recently was authorized by the federal government to spend more than $19 Billion dollars to develop and implement EHR (electronic health records) and related security solutions.
This health information act will qualify users to receive substantial financial reimbursements if EHR solutions are aquired and implemented prior to the year 2011. Physicians can qualify for reimbursements of $44,000 - $64,000 and hospitals of $3-$11 million over a five year period starting in 2011.
The government has yet to establish EHR standards which will determine which ehr systems will qualify for reimbursements. To further complicate the issue, users are expected to aquire and implement solutions in 2009 and 2010 to qualify for maximum credit reimbursements.
Lastly, if an EHR solution is not implemented by 2014, not only will you be unable to collect reimbursement, but you will be subject to financial penalties.
