It Pays to Adopt Electronic Health Records

Providers throughout California are about to get a significant amount of help in establishing their electronic health record systems, according to Raul Ramirez, chief of the state’s Office of Health IT. “Our hope is to launch the incentive program on April 1,” he said. “We’ve been in contact with CMS (federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services), and we expect feedback any time now.” If the launch goes as planned, providers could start seeing incentive payments starting in May, Ramirez said.
