DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Feb 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- WorkSmart MD, Inc. announced today it will provide Free EMR software to its physician clients that utilize its medical billing and practice management services.
On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the HITECH Act which includes provisions to promote the use of Electronic Medical Records and authorizes incentive payments for providers that demonstrate meaningful use. In 2015, providers are expected to adopt and successfully utilize EMR to avoid financial penalties by Medicare and Medicaid.
"The Government's Stimulus program is a great way to help physician practices. The problem that we see over and over is that doctors don't have the time or money to successfully use EMR. As part of our continuing commitment to our clients and helping them improve the financial performance of their practice we will be giving them free EMR in conjunction with our medical billing services," reports M. Jayson Meyer, CEO of WorkSmart MD, Inc.
The web-based software includes integrated billing and allows physicians to submit electronic prescriptions. Additional features include web-based scheduling, free lab integration, and a patient payment portal. WorkSmart MD reports an iPhone app that allows EMR access from anywhere.
"Our model is straight forward and simple. We supply physicians with state-of-the-art, certified, Electronic Medical Records, e-prescribing, all medical billing and clearinghouse services, practice management software and experts to help them maximize its' potential- all for a cost that equates to sales tax. The net result is 10-15% more cash flow, faster reimbursement, and up to $44,000 in Medicare incentives for the practice," reports David B. VanderVoort, VP Sales & Marketing.
