Massachusetts eHealth Institute is part of an extensive network of 60 Regional Extension Centers (RECs) across North America that serves as a neutral source for EHR and health information technology (HIT) as providers seek to navigate EHR options and select vendors that meet meaningful use requirements. Massachusetts eHealth Institute performed an exhaustive analysis of vendors in the HIT landscape prior to recommending solutions to its physician base.
“We are pleased to have Sage join our select list of certified health IT companies that will help thousands of health care providers across Massachusetts successfully transition to electronic health records," said Rick Shoup, Ph.D., Director of the Massachusetts eHealth Institute. "Widespread deployment of electronic health records leads to better quality care for patients, reduces health care costs and spurs new jobs in the health care industry."
Sage Intergy line of products and services met Massachusetts eHealth Institute’s standards for quality. By implementing a fully automated EHR such as Sage Intergy, providers will be better able to achieve meaningful use.
Through the partnership, Sage will support Massachusetts eHealth Institute’s goal to increase quality of care and improve public health.
“Being named a preferred vendor by the Massachusetts eHealth Institute means Sage will continue to provide physicians within the state with IT solutions and support as they move toward meaningful use and into the new healthcare economy,” said Ken Ernsting, Vice President of Business Development for Sage Healthcare Division. “We’re proud to serve medical professionals in Massachusetts, and aligning with this leading health organization.”
Clinics eligible to utilize Massachusetts eHealth Institute’s subsidized services include Priority Primary Care Providers (PPCP) in the area of family medicine, obstetrics, and gynecology, general internal or pediatric medicine. In addition, practices must be either individual or a small group practices (defined as 10 or fewer professionals with prescriptive privileges in the practice) primarily focused on primary care; public and critical access hospitals; and community health centers and rural health clinics.
