TSI Healthcare Customers Receive Government Incentives for Meeting EHR Requirements


CHAPEL HILL, N.C., April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TSI Healthcare announced today that nineteen (19) of their physician practices had attested to successfully meeting "Meaningful Use" requirements of their ONC-ATCB Certified NextGen™ Electronic Health Records (EHR) Systems. These providers completed data collection last year and participated in the 2011 Stage 1 reporting period for the Federal Government sponsored EHR Incentives program.  These Clients represent the first round of TSI Healthcare's clients expected to participate in the program during the 2011 and 2012 reporting periods.

"The impossible has become a reality.  Even with all the encouragement that money is being paid by the Federal Government, we were skeptical. However, the check in the bank is proof that anything is possible," wrote Dr. Vic Khemsara, an ophthalmologist at Summit Eye Care in Winston Salem, NC.  Khemsara continues, "…a special thank you goes out to TSI Healthcare's team who literally held our hands throughout this process."

Another recipient of the Government Funds includes Yuma District Hospital & Clinics in Yuma, Colorado.  Jason Hawley, Director of Information Services at Yuma Hospital, shared similar sentiments, "From the Help Desk staff to the President's office, everyone at TSI Healthcare has played a role in helping us reach Meaningful Use.  We could not have achieved this without their support and dedication to our success."

The practices completing attestation include a variety of specialties with wide ranges of experience.  Some of the TSI Healthcare qualifying practices have just recently completed implementations while others have over seven (7) years of NextGen™ EHR experience.  To date, TSI Healthcare Clients have secured over $100,000 in incentive payments and an additional $294,000 is expected to be paid to Clients over the coming weeks.

TSI Healthcare's approach to "Meaningful Use" is unique to the EHR industry.  In addition to providing hands-on assistance unique to each practice, TSI Healthcare's Providers are encouraged to take part in TSI Healthcare's Meaningful Use Readiness Analysis™.  This custom program examines their NextGen™ system utilization, provides a practice-specific roadmap to attainment, and educates the practice on the various aspects of the EHR Incentives program.

"We could not be more thrilled for our Clients who have achieved Meaningful Use and who are already receiving the financial rewards of this program," said David Dickson, Jr., President and CEO of TSI Healthcare.  "These benefits are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team and our Clients' commitment to a new way of practicing medicine and taking care of patients."
