My EMR Choice launches One Stop Program for Electronic Medical Record Information

My EMR Choice.com, llc, a healthcare technology process and evaluation company, is connecting physicians with Electronic Medical Record systems (EMR) through its One Stop EMR Advantage program.

January 11, 2011 -- A free service to medical staff and physicians, My EMR Choice matches a physician’s unique needs in selecting from the hundreds of Electronic Medical Record systems and related services. “The HITECH Act requires physicians to move from paper to electronic medical records. This is a process, not just a product” says Doug Wallace, Executive VP of My EMR Choice. “Our signature advantage is our continually working with the physician throughout the sales process to ensure the accuracies in identifying and implementing of a fully computerized medical practice, as well as registering for incentive funds which have already begun to be paid out”. The HITECH Act, part of the stimulus program of 2009, has allocated billions of dollars for EMR adoption and development of health Information exchanges. Spending on EMR systems is expected to exceed $3.8 billion in 2015, up from $2 billion in 2009. Doctors can receive incentive payments of more than $44,000 over four years if they update to an EMR system. “In addition to selecting from hundreds of EMR systems, physicians need to make a choice among providers of broadband connectivity, security, computer tablets, patient portals, billing, and many other pieces to the puzzle. Perhaps none of these will compare to the interest we see developing for patient access to their own personal health record information (PHR), anywhere, anytime” said Wallace. The One Stop EMR Advantage program is open to all healthcare and medical professionals. Information can be found by visiting the My EMR Choice website at www.myEMRchoice.com.

Personal Health Records On-Demand, In Your Pocket

myEMRchoice.com Enables Personal Health Record Devices with Medical Data Fort Washington, PA (PRWEB)

December 2, 2009 -- Perhaps the best medical advice to give consumers is to read their own medical records. With the advent of Person Health Records (PHR), keeping control of personal medical records is easier than ever. MyEMRChoice.com, a Fort Washington, PA based healthcare technology company has added services that will populate existing consumer PHR devices with medical data from different Electronic Medical Record systems (EMR).

As is the case in most instances, the law requires physicians to provide their patients with copies of their medical records. However, most consumers have never even bothered to ask for copies of their health records. Having access and understanding personal medical files not only gives specific information about their conditions, but offers more insight about the patients doctor. Patients reading their own medical records are often surprised to discover details their doctors neglected to share, or omissions that should be included within your medical profile.

Personal Health Records are widely available online or on a computerized Electronic Medical Record. The latest devices provide consumers the ability to carry their PHR in their pocket (on a flash drive) or other convenient devices like a data storage card the same dimensions as a credit card. Each device can contain current medical information such as medications, conditions and images.

The benefits can be enormous for patients, physicians and medical technology companies. Having ready access to medical conditions, registering and sharing medical information with physicians and avoiding piles of paperwork are just a few of the advantages. These benefits also are in line with coming changes related to healthcare information technology requirements, or "meaningful use".

"Soon, patients will ask their doctors if they offer Electronic Medical Records enabled with PHR" says Doug Wallace, founder of myEMRChoice.com. "If a medical practice does not offer patient the convenience of PHR, patients may go elsewhere".

Some hurdles to widespread PHR demand exist, such as keeping the PHR information current, data security, and legality of the medical documentation. However, the adoption of health Information technology and Personal Health Records may contribute to combating rising healthcare costs and provide quality improvement measures for improved patient care.

Based in Fort Washington, PA, MyEMRchoice.com connects patients and physicians to healthcare technology solutions and assists healthcare providers in fulfilling their vision for outstanding patient care. To learn more about how MyEMRchoice.com can assist your practice, visit www.MyEMRchoice.com.

US Health Information Director Blumenthal Addresses Electronic Medical Records in Philadelphia:

Electronic, Personal Health Records definitions seen as Evolutionary

Philadelphia, PA (November 12, 2009) Speaking at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, Dr. David Blumenthal, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology addressed the need for information technology to improve patient care across the “complex and difficult” spectrum of the US healthcare system.

Dr. Blumenthal’s keynote address, presented at the Health Information Exchange Summit in coordination with the Canadian Consulate in Philadelphia and the Eastern Technology Council, focused on resolutions related to Health Information Technology from the Office of the National Coordinator’s Policy Committee. Primary among the issues related to adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) for all physicians and patients by 2014, Dr. Blumenthal spent a large portion of his 40 minute speech on achieving “meaningful use” from Electronic Medical Records.

Citing advisory committee findings and the need to improve patient care, Dr. Blumenthal indicated that a definition of “meaningful use” EMR should be in place by the end of 2009. Following will be a 60 day comment period and a period of reconsiderations leading to a final definition of meaningful use.

Based on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, physicians can qualify for up to $44,000 in incentives for switching from paper-based to Electronic Medical Records. In order to receive such funds, an EMR system must demonstrate “meaningful use” which is currently defined as having the ability to electronically prescribe medications, exchange information and report on quality data.

“We are impressed with the communication and openness from Dr. Blumenthal and the ONC regarding expectations of EMR systems as they will greatly affect on the patient-doctor encounter. As more than 300 million US patients become aware of their Personal Health Records and EMR, we expect quite an influence on policy to be formulated by the consumer” said Douglas Wallace, Executive V.P. with MyEMRChoice.com.

Blumenthal commented on the evolutionary nature of both EMR and Personal Health Records in reaching a final definition on meaningful use, and that public comments and wisdom will help to frame the EMR policy. Additionally, Dr. Blumenthal commented that estimates hold that the health IT vertical market may be 50,000 workers short in an increasingly complex field.

For complete coverage on Dr. Blumenthal’s presentation and more on “meaningful use” EMR, stimulus funding and HIT policy, visit www.MyEMRChoice.com.

myemrchoice.com announces New EMR Resource

"Doctor Friendly" EMR Quarterly Newsletter will Monitor and Report on Progress, Compliance, Myth and Facts of EMR Adoption to assist Physicians EMR Selection

Doylestown, PA (October 15, 2009). MyEMRchoice.com, llc. an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Sales and Business Development Service based in Doylestown, PA has outlined an ambitious initiative for collecting and sharing data on Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Electronic Health Records (EHR) to be shared with physicians and healthcare organizations.

Switching from paper based records to Electronic Health Records is a key component to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), as well as the program for Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH). The Federal Government and ARRA stimulus funding has called for adoption of Electronic Health Records by 2014, with financial incentives to quicken adoption of EMRs and penalties for physicians that hesitate or do not comply.

“A vision for healthcare automation has been put into motion, but there are a lot of blurred lines and misinformation”, says Douglas Wallace, Executive V.P., EMR Business Development. “In addition to EMR adoption timeframes, financial incentives and ‘meaningful use’ requirements, making a choice between hundreds of EMR vendors and dealers is simply overwhelming. We hear the confusion and frustration each day in our conversations with visitors to www.MyEMRchoice.com”, says Wallace.

MyEMRchoice.com will continue to collect information from “early adopters” of EMR systems to provide insight to EMR systems and expectation levels. Criteria will include such factors as user satisfaction, ease of use, support, Return on Investment (ROI) and timely compliance with regulatory functions such as CCHIT (Certification Committee on Health Information Technology) and PQRI (Physicians Quality Reporting Initiative). 

The new initiative, named the “EMR Power Ranking”, aims to provide EMR information free from misconception, entrenched relationships and “pay to rank” policies. “The bottom line to the EMR Power Ranking is getting an answer to the question ‘are you happy with your EMR or not, and why?”, says Wallace.

Physicians and Electronic Medical Record Vendors to Benefit from H.R. 3014

Measure will provide funding under the Small Business Act

Doylestown, PA (July 9, 2009)  The push for adoption of Electronic Medical and Health Records (EMR/EHR) was assisted on June 24, 2009 by the drafting of House Resolution 3014 which will “provide loan guarantees for the acquisition of health information technology by eligible professionals in solo and small group practices”.

The measure should serve to overcome a consistently cited barrier to adoption of EMR by doctors…cost.

Sponsored by Congresswoman Kathleen Dahlkemper and co-sponsored by seven other members of the House of Representatives, the bill seeks to amend the Small Business Act to allow loan guarantees so eligible professionals in solo and small group practices can purchase health IT such as Electronic Medical Records (EMR) that demonstrates "meaningful use." A final definition of “meaningful use” is due by spring 2010, developed by the Certification Committee for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT).

“The two major factors causing doctors apprehension to adopting EMR are cost and the disruption of moving from established paper based record keeping to an electronic format. H.R. 3014 can well serve to ease the burden of the financial portion, and we fully urge physicians, patients and EMR vendors to call on their Representatives to pass this legislation” said Doug Wallace, Executive V.P. of MyEMRChoice.com.

The full text of H.R. 3014, as well as its status and updates can be viewed by visiting http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-3014 or www.MyEMRChoice.com.
