Rockville, MD, United States, 2011/01/04 - Late-November CMS electronic prescribing incentives update for 2011 finalized stipulations regarding the adoption of electronic prescribing in 2011 to avoid incurring penalties in 2012 and 2013.
eDoctor, Inc., a web-based health IT company, announced today that physicians can avoid 2012 and 2013 MIPPA penalties by taking advantage of eDoctor’s affordable and easy e-prescribing program.
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)’s 2011 Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Update published in November 2010, e-prescribing data from January 1, 2011 to June 30, 2011 will be used to determine if physicians are subject to 2011 penaltiies.
“At the end of November, CMS finalized a policy in which practitioners need to do e-prescribing ten times by June of 2011, or else they would be hit with a 1% penalty in 2012. This last-minute change by CMS still gives doctors time to not only avoid 2012 penalties, but also to take advantage of the 1% reimbursement for all of 2011,” said Se Kang, President of eDoctor, Inc.
eDoctor, Inc. provides a standalone e-Prescribing system that will affordably allow doctors to fully comply with CMS changes. In partnership with Newcrop, a Surescripts Gold-certified back engine, eDoctor also provides data migration and live syncing services that are now being used by hundreds of practitioners in over 15 states.
“In just three months, eDoctor has really established itself as the go-to company for an affordable and intuitive e-prescribing module. That kind of success speaks directly to the quality of eDoctor’s offerings, and most of all, service. As a doctor myself, I appreciate the simplicity of eDoctor’s standalone e-prescribing system,” said Dr. Ingrid Chung, Co-Chairman of the eDoctor’s Medical Advisory Board.
