As Health IT Emerges, MU Payouts Starting to Make Headlines
Some of the earliest adopters of EHR are starting to collect dividends from their investments this week. • At Medical Arts Radiology of Long Island, NY, 14 radiologists have maxed out their earnings for 2011 Stage 1 incentives, each cashing in on $18,000 apiece. The practice uses MedicsDocAssistant EHR for Radiology and MedicsRIS, both of which are produced by Advanced Data Systems Corporation. • Seattle Radiologists became the first facility in Washington state to make it rain meaningful use dollars; their HIT solution of choice is MedInformatix Version 7.5. • Radiologists at the Flint, MI-based Regional Medical Imaging took home $216,000 in MU for demonstrating meaningful use of EHR through the Merge RIS v7.0 software suite.
