How Will the Transition to EMR Affect Your Practice?

As part of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, approximately $19.2 billion has been designated for the adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) technology. For physician practices across the nation, the transition to EMR is one of the most talked about –and confusing – topics right now. While not a government mandate, adopting EMR technology will allow physicians to receive incentives in the form of increased Medicare and Medicaid payments beginning in 2011. Those who do not adopt EMR face penalties in the form of severely decreased Medicare and Medicaid payments beginning 2015.

TMC Practice Management Services works with physician groups across the nation to help make the transition to EMR affordable and painless. As a TMC medical billing client, you'll already enjoy the industry's leading practice solution technology, GE Centricity, making integration of GE Centricity EMR that more faster and simpler.
