What is the HITECH Act? (HITECH ACT OF 2009)

President Obama signed The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) into law by on February 17, 2009. Included in the ARRA is the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, or HITECH Act. The government firmly believes in the benefits of using electronic health records (EHR) and has invested $19.2 Billion of federal resources for the creation of a national health care IT infrastructure and accelerate the adoption of EHR by physicians and hospitals. The HITECH Act also widens the scope of privacy and security protections available under HIPAA.

According to the Act, physicians are eligible to receive up to $44,000 in total incentives per physician from Medicare for “meaningful use” of a certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) starting in 2011.

Although the certification process and standards remain unclear, reimbursement will be granted for the “meaningful use” of a certified EHR. We at Infocus have received the most current CCHIT certification for our Symphony 3.0 Electronic Health Record System. We are also committed to aligning our technology solutions to new guidelines that are enacted; keeping you abreast of how they will affect your practice and what we will be doing to assure that you receive the full incentive amount of $44,000.
