East Brunswick, NJ, November 06, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Leading EHR solution providers CATS Technology, along with HealthCare Solutions Group and Greenway Medical Technologies Inc., have announced a joint effort to educate the medical community in the New Jersey market on best practices surrounding electronic health records (EHR) technologies as they fit into new federal guidelines.
Executives from each of these three outstanding health care organizations and health information technology
company will be joining forces to offer a series of onsite group educational workshops titled “The Truth about EHR and Its Impact On Your Practice.” The goal of the workshops is to ensure a uniform understanding among the EMR
community of new federal guidelines concerning EHR processing and that physicians not only understand the benefits, but also effectively identify the never spoken about pitfalls of moving to an EHR, like potential revenue losses, as well as workflow and technology implications in their practice. Make sure you are well prepared for what is the single most critical juncture in the history of your practice.
“Our goal is to help medical practitioners by providing real life examples for overcoming barriers by offering insights on the best practices for implementation of EHR technologies, focusing on the planning, selection and implementation of the most applicable EHR system the practices are dealing with,” said Joe Cistaro, CATS senior vice president of sales and operations.
The Federal government’s health care initiative has created new mandates for the medical sector to implement or upgrade existing EHR solutions in order to meet new technological demands for security and consistency purposes. Many of these requirements have left practitioners with unanswered questions and these educational seminars intend to help fill in the gaps.
“At a time when physicians are struggling to address the challenges of maintaining the profitability of their practices the federal government is now putting pressure on the medical community to implement EHR solutions as part of the overall healthcare reform initiative,” said Mario Gianvito, lead consultant with Healthcare Solutions Group. “Researching and understanding what is needed to implement effective EHR systems can be like drinking from a fire hose. Too much information and not enough guidance focused on the realities behind the scenes. Now is the time to educate your physicians and physician groups on what to expect when complying with the federal mandate.”
Dave Willner, regional sales manager with Greenway Medical Technologies says solid leadership and business success are linked to a commitment to flexibility and a willingness to keep up-to-date on changing EHR technologies and federal mandates. “Ensuring a medical practice’s success is dependent on strong leadership and commitment that employs best practices with efficiency, backed by ample training and timely support services.”
