Austin, TX, July 17, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- VersaSuite, a leading Electronic Health Record, Practice Management and PACS company announces its support for the long-awaited final rule on Meaningful Use of an Electronic Health Record (EHR), as well as EHR Standards and Certification regulations released July 13, 2010.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service's (CMS) final rule clarifies provisions under the HITECH Act, a section of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), that provide incentive payments to qualified physicians for the adoption and meaningful use of certified EHRs. The incentive payments of up to $44,000 for Medicare providers and up to $63,750 for Medicaid providers, are expected to play an instrumental role in accelerating the adoption and meaningful use of EHRs, resulting in a more connected and coordinated healthcare system, less medical errors and lower overall cost.
"VersaSuite is very pleased with the announcement of the Final Rule," stated Rodney Brown, VersaSuite's Sales and Marketing Chief. "VersaSuite has already been through the CCHIT certification process and reiterate our guarantee that we will meet and exceed the new certification criteria." Mr. Brown continued by stating, "VersaSuite, with our single database and fully integrated EHR, PM, HIS, RIS/PACS, ASC and Inventory Management solutions, have become a major player in the health care IT software market. Providers can feel confident when choosing VersaSuite that in addition to getting one of the most robust solutions in the industry, they will also have the best support."
Since the release of the Interim Final Rule (IFR) on certification criteria and Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on Meaningful Use in December 2009, VersaSuite has taken the necessary steps to meet and exceed all expected requirements to become an ARRA certified EHR. In addition, VersaSuite has rapidly expanded their Support, Training and Sales teams in order to meet the expected surge in demand.
