Leading National Expert on Meaningful Use Partners with HITECH Answers in Virtual Extension Center
HITECH Answers, a leader in providing vendor neutral education on the HITECH Act, announced today that Jim Tate of EMR Advocate will become a partner in their web-based Virtual Extension Center (VEC).
"For almost two years now we've been an independent source for education on the HITECH Act with a mission similar to that of the Regional Extension Centers – support providers in adoption of a certified EHR system that meets meaningful use criteria”, said Carol Flagg, a Managing Partner with HITECH Answers. “Jim has been a resident contributing expert for us along the way and it was a natural step having him take a larger role given his knowledge and expertise.”
“HITECH Answers offers one of the largest, most extensive resources out there for EPs and EHs to get help in understanding the many challenges of meaningful use and EHR adoption”, says Mr. Tate. “Being involved in their VEC offers me the chance to help literally thousands of providers in the effort to achieve meaningful use. This is not just a new venture for me; it’s an adventure as well and I’m excited to be involved.”
HITECH Answers Virtual Extension Center (VEC) supports Eligible Professionals, specialists and hospitals looking for education and analysis throughout the HITECH life cycle in a 100% virtual environment. Membership to the VEC provides support through three key elements:
1, Live web casts on topics specific to helping members meet the many challenges associated with EHR implementation and qualifying for EHR CMS Incentives.
2. Access to an extensive web-based library of research and recordings.
3. A Q & A forum that allows members to ask a question of our experts and get an answer emailed back to them.
Membership is free for all Eligible Professionals and Hospitals as well as for medical societies and associations for the lifetime of the HITECH Act.
