The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, signed into law February 17, 2009, by President Obama, provides $19 billion to help healthcare organizations adopt health information technologies. The majority of the funding will go toward supporting adoption of EHR. The incentives allow physicians that adopt and use a certified EHR between $44,000 and $64,000 over a five-year period. The timely partnership between mPacts and Allscripts will offer experience and efficiency to physician practices all over the Southeast.
mPacts is rapidly becoming one of the largest IT support and consultation groups for healthcare practices in the Southeast. Their focus is exclusively on healthcare and they place a high priority on security. They seamlessly act as the IT department, improving operational efficiencies, and ultimately quality of patient care. mPacts has recently expanded into Western New York and they have plans to expand throughout the country.
Allscripts uses innovation technology to bring health to healthcare. More than 150,000 physicians utilize Allscripts to improve patient health and their bottom-line. Their cutting-edge technology provides a comprehensive suite of solutions for physician practices of all sizes.
“We are excited to partner with mPacts to help their physician clients provide even better quality care for their patients in a more cost-effective manner,” said Vern Davenport, President of Allscripts Professional Solutions Group. “Coupled with the new financial incentives from the federal government to use a certified EHR, physicians are motivated now more than ever to step onto the electronic healthcare highway.” “The addition of the Allscripts EHR technology will increase operational efficiency for practitioners, ultimately resulting in efficient practice management, faster provision of enhanced services to patients and overall profitability,”
