Vitera Healthcare Solutions, the nation’s premier provider of ambulatory electronic health records (EHR) and practice management software and services, announced today a complimentary webinar to help physicians and their practices prepare for upcoming Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements.
Physicians, practice administrators, billing managers and all office-based staff members can attend on August 28, 2013, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. ET, by registering at .
Presented by Stephen McCallister, CPEHR, CPHIT, a recognized healthcare IT and EHR expert and a consultant with MGMA’s Healthcare Consulting Group, the webinar will walk attendees through “the fast track” to Meaningful Use success in 2014.
Matthew J. Hawkins, CEO of Vitera Healthcare Solutions, says the company is actively helping providers prepare for the regulatory changes ahead, and making sure physicians, their practices and their patients benefit. “We’ll continue to support the success of ambulatory practices and public health centers by providing valuable insight and No. 1-ranked solutions that reduce costs, grow revenue and improve the health of patients,” Hawkins says.
2013 has been called the “Year of the EHR Switch” by independent researcher Black Book Rankings. It reports that almost 20% of practices could be preparing for changes ahead by abandoning their current EHR for those rated best for usability — including when it comes to Meaningful Use attestation. Vitera ranks No. 1 in Black Book Rankings’ recent user satisfaction survey of over 3,400 users and more than 525 vendors, securing the top spot as the company most likely to address providers’ EHR replacement needs.
All of Vitera’s EHR solutions, including Vitera Intergy, Vitera Stat and Medical Manager EHR, will be Meaningful Use Stage 2 certified by 2014.
“Vitera Intergy and other Vitera products that are available have been a tremendous help with Meaningful Use,” says Vitera customer Stephanie Edrington, collection manager, Alchemy Medical Consultants. “With Vitera’s Practice Analytics and the dashboards, Meaningful Use has become a breeze.”
To date, Vitera has helped over 4,100 eligible medical professionals secure more than $91 million in Stage 1 Meaningful Use incentive payments. Providers can attest for Stage 2 requirements beginning in 2014.
“In a short amount of time, there is a lot to get right,” says McCallister, who has more than 20 years’ experience implementing IT systems for healthcare companies. “The difficulty between what it takes to achieve Stage 1 and Stage 2 is so great, it could easily catch some providers off guard.”
Adds Hawkins, “Our customers can expect Vitera to continue to make available webinars and a variety of educational resources, as we help them thrive and prosper in a new era of healthcare.”
