Coker Group Confirms 92% of TSI Healthcare Clients Should Receive Meaningful Use Incentives

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TSI Healthcare announced today that over 90% of their qualified EHR clients have attested or will attest for almost $2,000,000 in Meaningful Use Incentives for the 2011 and 2012 reporting period. This represents a significant variance with the CMS reported National Average of just 9% of other healthcare providers currently using EHR Systems that expect Phase I payments.

According to an independent study conducted by The Coker Group, one of the nation's leading healthcare consulting and management services groups, TSI Healthcare ranks in the Top 5% of Practice Management and EHR Vendors nationwide that have clients who can or will qualify for Federal funds through the program (CMS 2009 HI‐TECH Act). According to Jeffery Daigrepont, Senior Vice President at Coker, "Our analysis reflects that 92% of TSI clients effectively using their NextGen EHR System have attested or are on schedule to attest for Meaningful Use by the end of this year. These results are quite simply exceptional and demonstrate the high level of attention that TSI has given their Clients in helping to lead them to these available incentives."
