Are you still dealing with paper medical records? Chances are you’re looking around for an EMR platform that meets your price and demands. Based on law and efficiency, it’s time to convert paper files to EMR.
Why Convert Paper Files to EMR, also known as an EMR Abstraction?
Let’s cut to the chase.
Included in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is a mandate that all public and private healthcare providers as well as other eligible professionals (EP) are required to adopt and demonstrate “meaningful use” of electronic medical records (EMR). by January 1, 2014 in order to maintain existing Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement levels.
There was an update in 2017 that put additional emphasis on data sharing and interoperability. This requirement has EMR vendors scrambling. 74 providers were removed of their authorization for not legally or technologically making data sharing possible. This has many physicians, clinics, and hospitals tending toward the big providers like EPIC.
