Vendor Selection and EHR Implementation
The use of electronic health record (EHR) systems has become more widespread and it’s changing the way physicians deliver healthcare. The demand for organizations to be more efficient and patient-centered means being able to leverage technology to eliminate redundancies, errors and manage daily operations effectively. In today’s evolving healthcare environment, it’s essential for providers to stay current with technology.
For more information, please visit our EHR services page.
Meaningful Use Support
Meaningful use simply means that providers need to show they’re using certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology in ways that can be measured against quality standards. These standards allow eligible providers to potentially earn incentive payments and avoid penalties by meeting specific criteria.
Meaningful use is using certified EHR technology to:
- Improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities
- Engage patients and family
- Improve care coordination, and population and public health
- Maintain privacy and security of patient health information
For more information, please visit our Meaningful Use services page.
Privacy and Security Assessment
Safeguarding a patient’s protected health information is paramount when it comes to the effectiveness of electronic health records. Failure to meet HIPAA standards can lead to hefty fines and penalties. Conducting an SRA is a requirement for achieving Meaningful Use and to qualify for incentive payments.

E/M Coding and Documentation Training
Evaluation and Management (E/M) Coding is a system for medical billing that medical providers are required to use for reimbursement from Medicare/Medicaid and private insurers. E/M services describe the time and work involved when a provider of service is evaluating a patient’s condition(s) and determining the management of the care required to treat the patient. E/M is not specific to one medical specialty, nor is it specific to one body system or an anatomical area. Our AHIMA-Approved trainers can provide you with the curriculum and knowledge your practice needs to be fully compliant and help increase your revenue.
For more information, please visit our E/M Coding Training services, workshops and webinars page.

Billing errors can reduce a practice’s revenue by up to 30%, which can translate into as much as $50,000 in lost revenue per provider. Whether it’s inaccurate or inefficient billing, errors can affect your practice’s bottom line. A billing audit provides a review of billing standards and helps correct billing oversights.
