The introduction of electronic medical records is a popular replacement for physical records, in that it reduces administration, is readily accessible, and lessens the chance of error or duplication. When implementing an EMR (electronic medical records) or EHR (electronic health records) system, consult with Image Solutions, experts in regulatory compliance solutions. The award winning Pros Elite 100 company regularly helps health care providers to remain in line with the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Image Solutions helps health care providers find solutions for:
• Privacy Regulations

• Staff Compliance Training

The regulations set out by the HIPAA pertain to meaningful use of electronic medical records, and come with financial incentives available to health care providers who comply. Meaningful Use criteria was recently updated, with a Stage 2 deadline in place for 2014.
To receive incentive payments, health care providers must demonstrate compliance with a number of core objectives, as well as reporting on clinical quality measures. Updated criteria concerns the use of certified technology, the provision of images and scans, as well as the preservation and access to test results. Image Solutions specializes in consulting with health care providers and hospitals concerned about complying with meaningful use guidelines.
