EHR Stimulus Funding

ehr stimulus questions to ask

Going paperless to receive ehr stimulus funding is a lot easier than you think! The question is not whether to go paperless or not, it is a matter of WHEN! There are many factors to consider when determining whether your practice will be successful at taking the leap to 100% electronic AND qualifying for funding. There are some important questions to honestly ask yourself to avoid rushing into a bad situation down the line.

Questions To Consider Before Selecting A Solution To Qualify For Federal Incentives

  • Am I primarily interested in getting the EHR incentive money?
  • Am I primarily interested in going 100% electronic, and the EHR incentive money is just a nice bonus?
  • Do I have the upfront capital to invest in an EHR? Or do I need the Federal ehr stimulus funding to pay for my investment?
  • Do I have the buy-in from my staff to make the switch? Are they tech savvy?
  • Would my staff benefit from taking a slower, more measured approach to adding technology piece-by-piece into our practice?
  • Am I prepared to scan in all my patient folders to include in my EHR, devote staff time for EHR training, and do the necessary attestation paperwork to qualify for ehr stimulus funding?
  • Am I far enough along in the process of selecting an EHR, that I won't miss the 2011 window to meet the ehr stimulus funding requirements?
