Is Health Care Legislation The Only Reason For Electronic Medical Records?

Is Health Care Legislation The Only Reason For Electronic Medical Records?

The health care legislation currently in the news is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare“. This health care reform act has an individual health care insurance mandate and an employer mandate, but it doesn’t mandate an EMR softare solution.

However, any health care provider who wants to participate in the Obamacare Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), will need Electronic Medical Records to document the clinical aspects of the patient encounter and track encounters to ensure the provider gets credit for contributing to ACO objectives.

Electronic Medical Records Mandate

But the health care legislation that initially mandated the Electronic Health Record (EHR) / Electronic Medical Records (EMR) was the HITECH Act of 2009 (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act). Healthcare providers which accepting Medicare and Medicaid should already be aware of the 2014 deadline for EHR / EMR technology. Medical providers submitting Medicare claims, will begin getting zapped with penalties in 2015.

Is Health Care Legislation The Only Reason For Electronic Medical Records?

All Health Care Providers

Ignoring the Electronic Health Record mandate is not an option, even if you don’t send claims to CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) for reimbursement. Some great reasons below…

Is Obamacare Shutdown In The Future For Your Medical Practice?

Is Obamacare Shutdown In The Future For Your Medical Practice?

Alert: webinar starting now! http://goo.gl/DHQM5S

Is Obamacare Shutdown In The Future For Your Medical Practice?

Today we are still in the midst of the Obamacare shutdown.
Yes, Obamacare is the law of the land. And the sign up for Obamacare health plan via the health insurance exchanges has started. So that’s not what’s shut down.

Government Shutdown
Congress and the Obama administration are at an impasse – over Obamacare. So Congress refused to pass funding bills to fund the federal government unless Obamacare is defunded, delayed or derailed. Hence we have a partial shutdown of the federal government. This is what I’m calling the Obamacare shutdown.

Personal Shutdown
When people are overwhelmed and have too much to do, their response is to simply shut down. Psychiatry, psychology and healthcare providers are skilled at dealing with the personal shutdown patients.

Medical Practice Shutdown
Current issues in medical office management:

Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) / Affordable Care Act (ACA) / Obamacare
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)
Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health / HITECH Act
Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements
Electronic Health Records / Electronic Medical Records
Accountable Care Organization (ACO)
Clinical Quality Measures
Ability to handle surge in new paitents from Obamacare

All are rules, regulations and reporting requirements are reasons to consider shutting your medical practice down. Many physicians who are near retirement age are choosing to ignore health information technology and other changes.

If you want your medical practice to not only survive, but thrive, you might want to be on the
