EHR Guarantee

There are now 17 electronic health records (EHR) vendors that guarantee their product will support meaningful use criteria necessary for physicians to receive Medicare or Medicaid incentive payments under the HITECH Act. As stated by Greenway Medical Technologies Inc, "Eligible professionals who utilize PrimeSuite technology toward Meaningful Use certification, but do not achieve funding because of a failure of PrimeSuite to meet Meaningful Use certification criteria, will be compensated equal to the amount of lost stimulus funds that would have been paid during the PrimeSuite compliance failure." Sixteen other EHR vendors have taken the same stance; however, each vendor's "guarantee" terms vary. These vendors include: Allscripts, athenahealth, ChartLogic, e-MDs, eClinicalWorks, GE Healthcare, gloStream, HealthPort, Ingenix, Medsphere Systems, NextGen, Noteworthy Medical, Practice Fusion, Sage Healthcare, Sequel Systems and SourceMedical.
