Do You Really Understand HITECH?

If you are uncertain about the EHR Incentive Program, Medscape just launched a nice CME-accredited course on the HITECH provisions.  It’s pretty quick to review and complete — and it covers the essential information eligible professionals need to know. Don’t know what an “EP” is? Take the Medscape course. Don’t know if you can get incentives from both Medicaid & Medicare? Take the course.

You can also find information right here on AmericanEHR:

  • Dr. David Blumenthal’s webinar from August 2010 and the blog post from 8/18
  • Selected podcasts about EHR selection & implementation
  • If you’re a specialist, see this blog post
  • Links to CMS resource material

    You should also visit the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology website periodically to get information from the “source.”

    Note that the Medscape course was developed under contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
