Technology solutions from EMC², Cisco, VMware and Microsoft provide physicians and hospitals with tools to implement electronic health records quickly and affordably
ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As the healthcare IT industry continues to move toward “meaningful use” of electronic health records, consilium1, a specialized information technology consulting services company, today announced a suite of security compliance and data management services specifically designed to help physicians and hospitals meet the criteria for meaningful use of health information.
Beginning in 2011, billions of dollars in incentives will be available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Individual physicians and hospitals are eligible for tens of thousands of dollars of those incentives if they comply with a set of reporting measures. And, while most experts agree that the definition of meaningful use in healthcare will continue to evolve, it currently encompasses the ability to securely exchange health data electronically among providers, defining standard formats for clinical summaries and prescriptions and developing standard terms to describe clinical problems, procedures and tests.
consilium1 works closely with technology partners EMC², Cisco, VMware and Microsoft to assist physicians and hospitals in providing the underlying infrastructure that enables meaningful use of electronic health records, while also promoting regulatory compliance to HIPAA/HITECH guidelines. With a dedicated healthcare IT practice, consilium1 and its partners are able to provide a full suite of services to healthcare providers – from vendor assessment and establishing decision criteria, to security and data solutions – enabling them to design and implement projects quickly. Additionally, as many physicians and hospitals face the challenge of funding the technology and training required to implement electronic health records, consilium1 and its partners are able to offer creative financing options to customers, often allowing healthcare providers to attain meaningful use much sooner.
“With hundreds of thousands of dollars in incentives available to healthcare providers, more and more physicians and hospitals are striving for meaningful use of healthcare information in order to be eligible for those incentives,” said Michael Montagliano, consilium1’s senior technologist and director of risk management. “consilium1 and our partners are uniquely positioned to offer the healthcare industry the experience and expertise to identify and implement the right technologies to quickly and affordably achieve meaningful use.”
