CMS Develops Resources to Help Physicians Select an EHR and Issues That May Emerge When Contracting

Sep 29, 2016

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has developed 2 booklets that may be of interest to AAPM&R members. The Health IT Playbook is geared toward helping members understand what their needs are for an EHR system and how to select one that fits their needs.

The second informational booklet is geared towards actually contracting for an EHR. The EHR Contracting Guide delves into some of the pitfalls that may arise in contracting for an EHR and covers topics that may be useful when completing a contract negotiation with an EHR vendor.
