Healthcare documents – from driver’s license and prescriptions to insurance cards to patient records – are very different than conventional business communications. They involve more complicated workflows, populated with data from multiple sources, and they must comply with federal regulations. DocuSystems understands the challenges healthcare providers face and is equipped to offer you the technology to keep your hospital or doctor’s office efficient and compliant.

What is Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act)?

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act) legislation created to stimulate the adoption of electronic health records (EHR) and supporting technology in the United States. President Obama signed HITECH into law on February 17, 2009 as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), an economic stimulus bill. The HITECH act stipulates that, beginning in 2011, healthcare providers will be offered financial incentives for demonstrating meaningful use of electronic health records (EHR). Incentives will be offered until 2015, after which time penalties may be levied for failing to demonstrate such use. The Act also establishes grants for training centers for the personnel required to support a health IT infrastructure.
