There’s a new solution on the market to make HIPAA and HITECH compliance faster and easier, and the real draw is that it makes it easier for physicians to qualify for the stimulus incentives and bonuses from the ARRA, PQRI and E-Prescribing initiatives. In a business wire issued on October 22nd Reuters highlights the new “Surveillance Program” offered by Doctations.
The Surveillance Program allows physicians to meet requirements for the E-prescribing initiative for a 2% bonus, the Physicians Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) for a 2% bonus as well as to qualify for up to $44,000 in incentives from the ARRA via the High-Tech bonus. Doctations’ COO Jerry Kolosky highlights the benefits: “By implementing the Surveillance functionality, we are providing online tools that make it simple for doctors to meet new government requirements, help ensure positive patient outcomes and receive the associated financial benefits.”
Reuters states that “By implementing the medical practice management and digital documentation solutions as web-native tools, Doctations provides doctors and patients with advanced, secure, HIPAA compliant, comprehensive solutions that are substantially less expensive than any other options currently available.”
And yes, the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT) has certified this application. Doctations has committed to updating this program for immediate compliance with HIPAA and HITECH rules as well as other regulations.
